Kainuu lands FDI Strategy Award


Kainuu has been awarded a top 10 award for FDI Strategy in an external assessment by the Financial Times’; fDi Intelligence as part of their European Cities and Regions of the future 2016/2017 rankings. This fully independent assessment is conducted by the Financial Times every 2 years to highlight the top cities and regions within Europe for foreign direct investment (FDI) attractiveness. 

fDi Magazine’s biennial league tables of the most attractive locations in Europe for future inward investment have become a key benchmark of FDI competitiveness across the region. The FDI Strategy rankings recognise sound strategies for developing local economies, improving appeal to investors and going out to market to find, recruit and retain investors. 

While Kainuu is not included in those categories indicating positive investment attraction qualities such as market potential, innovation, data connectivity, financial climate and employment opportunities, our winning FDI strategy ranks us alongside some key European locations.
