Every second year, the Financial Times publication fDi Intelligence compares the attraction of investments in its survey European cities and regions. This time the Helsinki-Uusimaa Region came out as the winner of its own category Economic Potential. Also the Metropolitan Region and its cities did well.

The fDi survey compares cities and regions as to their investment promotion and economic development (FDI). This year, data was collected for 505 locations under six categories:

  • Economic Potential
  • Human Capital and Lifestyle
  • Cost Effectiveness
  • Connectivity
  • Business Friendliness
  • FDI Strategy.

Sectoral points were weighed by importance to their FDI decision-making process and the regions were compared within their population brackets.
