Finland has invited Indian techies to migrate there for work, offering opportunities as global tech companies lay off thousands of employees.
Finland aims to double work-based migration and triple study-based migration by 2030. “We are happy to welcome talent from India to Finland. Finland offers career opportunities in a myriad of professions like IT, health tech, clean tech, hydrogen and battery industries, manufacturing, hospitality & tourism and health sector,” said Laura Lindeman, senior director, Work in Finland, a government-backed group.
Business Finland, a government organisation for innovation funding and trade, travel and investments, in December 2022 signed a memorandum of understanding with the Confederation of Indian Industry for talent mobility. Finland’s government wants to attract new talent and skilled workers to increase tax revenue and fight population decline.
