During past years bilateral relations between Finland and China have clearly diversified and the recent decade significantly developed the cooperation both in the commercial and financial fields. This is clearly shown in the statistics. In 2014, the trade between Finland and China reached to 6.3 billion euros.

The amount of Chinese people living in Finland exceeds 8 000 people; about a quarter of them being students.
