Finland in the European Union

The basic stance of Finland’s EU policy is to further develop the European Union and to promote growth, stability and security in Europe. Finland is an active, pragmatic and result-oriented Member State.

Finland’s EU policy priorities are to promote common values, growth, competitiveness and the effectiveness of regulation, to strengthen the EU’s external and internal security and to respond to migration issues.

Government Report on EU Policy was published in January 2021. The thread running through the report is the need to strengthen the Union’s resilience to crisis in all EU activities.
