Finland to Restore Russia TiesFinland to Restore Russia Ties

Finland hopes to restore its trade relations with Russia amid anti-Russian sanctions imposed by the European Union, Esko Aho, Executive Chairman of the Board of East Office of Finnish Industries, said, Sputnik reported. The Finnish economy is suffering from the decline in trade operations with Russia. The volume of Finnish exports to Russia has been declining for the past two years. The international economic forum in St. Petersburg which ends on Sunday proved that western businesses want to keep their relations with Russia without breaching the sanctions regime. After a year-long break, many western companies returned to the economic summit in St. Petersburg. Foreign investors are also showing their increasing interest in the Russian market.
