Editor Allan Leibowitz comments on the news of the week
If you follow the datelines (the location of our news items), Finland punches way above its weight, with at least one mention every week. This week, there are even more. The regularity of Finland's appearance in our news might give the impression that the streets are crowded with forklifts, reachstackers and cranes - but apparently, that is not the case! The country has a thriving economy, dominated by metals and metal products, electronics, machinery and scientific instruments, shipbuilding, pulp and paper, foodstuffs, chemicals, textiles and clothing, and according to online sources, its exports account for more than USD70 billion each year. But most importantly, Finland is regarded as a very good place to do business - ranking 20th on the 2020 listing of easy business locations. So, let's celebrate our Finnish readers with the traditional toast of kippis.
