Two years have passed under the pandemic, which has shaken the world economy. The business landscape has stabilized to a kind of “new normal” at least here in China. Government’s zero tolerance for Covid -cases has helped China’s economy to recover from the initial shock at the beginning of the pandemic outbreak faster than in other countries. But is it turning against itself now when other world is opening to normal business and China still stays closed?

This year’s Finnish Business Confidence Survey with a record amount of 145 companies across China were participating and providing insights on the market conditions and expectations for 2022. The record amount of participants in the survey makes it the most comprehensive Finnish Business Confidence Survey in China to date, highlighting the importance of peer review and challenges companies face while operating in this uncertain economic situation.

The 2022 Finnish Business Confidence Survey was carried out simultaneously by Finnish Business Councils in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangdong, and FinnCham in Hong Kong, and to better understand the business environment for Finnish and Finland-related companies in Greater China. This year also Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment of Finland participated in the questionnaire formulating by adding few questions.
