Analyses the context of the recent changes in Finland’s economic performance and its trading relationship with the former USSR. Examines the Finnish business system, with its distinctive characteristics established by the dominant forest products sector, in relation to the development of the country’s newer electronics sector. Uses four Finnish company case examples to illustrate managerial opinion, company strategy and development in light of the country’s application to join the European Union (EU). Draws implications for Finnish companies of EU membership and considers its impact on the country’s business system.
