Finland’s Governmental Action Plan on China 2021

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs and other ministries have jointly updated Finland’s Governmental Action Plan on China from 2010. The Action Plan on China 2021 provides an overall assessment of Finland’s relations and cooperation with China. The rapidly evolving international environment as well as need for relevant, up-to-date information within the government and other actors involved in cooperation with China have made it necessary to update the Action Plan. The Action Plan strengthens the consistent approach and policy line on China and does not entail any new policies.

The Action Plan describes Finland’s approach to and areas of cooperation with China as well as Finland’s contribution to EU’s China policy. It also provides an overview on the wider international context, such as China’s growing global role and great power relations.
