Boosting economic growth by promoting the internationalisation of enterprises
The goal of promoting the internationalisation of enterprises is strengthening sustainable economic growth to create new jobs and to increase enterprises’ turnover and export.
As enterprises aim toward growth, expanding outside Finnish borders is necessary at an early stage. The aim of internationalisation is to reach new customers and markets, competitive technologies and business models, suppliers for goods and services as well as capital and investments.
As a part of industrial policy, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment supports the internationalisation of enterprises. Operation focuses especially on the internationalisation of SMEs through Team Finland services. Services provided by the MEAE, and e.g. Finpro, Tekes and Finnvera, include support services for enterprises’ internationalisation and export, and promoting foreign investments and tourism. The business services provided by Team Finland include advice, networking, training, and development and funding services.
