During the recent years world’s attention has focused on China for many different reasons. Not the least, the growth of Chinese economy has been dramatic, and despite the worldwide financial problems it still continues. Economically and also in a broader sense China has become an important partner of Finland.

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. There are almost 400 Finnish companies in China and Finns have invested at least 10 billion euros in China.

Growing interest in the Chinese language and culture has also for its part played an important role in this development. Approximately 70 000 tourists and business people visit China annually. Also the amount of Finnish people living in China has grown year by year - at the moment, there are about 2 000 Finns in China. The amount of Chinese people living in Finland exceeds 8 000 people; about a quarter of them being students.

The growing presence of Finland in China has increased the need to inform the public about the services provided by the Embassy.
