What we do

Research by the team at the China Office of Finnish Industries primarily focuses on explaining economic developments, policies and legislation of the People’s Republic of China (PRC); assessing political-economic trends affecting the business environment (especially in the sectors that our shareholders operate in), and evaluating the impact of rapidly evolving geopolitical tensions on economic growth and the business environment in the PRC.

Additionally we conduct in-depth research examining the viability of the PRC’s goals to achieve sustainable growth and the major challenges facing PRC decisionmakers in pursuing these goals, such as the impact on productivity of an ageing population and environmental hurdles, in particular water scarcity.
