Excerpt from Trade and Industry of Finland

Keen and systematic propaganda has been deemed desirable in order to consolidate and extend the commercial relations between Finland and the English-speaking countries, especially Great Britain, the United States and South America, and the present work is intended to form one link in the chain of that propaganda.

The work was planned shortly after the Finnish Declaration of Independence, and immediately after the return of the Finnish Trade Commission which visited England, the United States and other countries in the year 1919). The Commission found that one of the most important means to the formation of lasting trade relations between Finland and those countries would be the dissemination of knowledge of our economic conditions, our industries, what we can offer for export and what we need to import. The idea of publishing a work of reference like the present hook at once received the hearty support of the chairman of the Trade Commission, Mr. Jacob von Julin, and of Mr. Axel Solitander, then chief director of the Board of Trade and Industry, and afterwards Finnish Consul-General in New York. As the Ministry of Trade and Industry, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and a number of the most eminent business men in the country also showed an interest in the matter, it was resolved to compile a publication which should contain accurate and quite objective descriptions of the largest and most vitally important economic undertakings in Finland, such as banks, manufacturing establishments, commercial firms, etc.

The publishers are well aware that a work of this kind cannot hope to he wholly free from omissions and errors. They have, however, desired to make it as complete as possible, and have spared no pains to secure full and exact information. In a few cases changes of management and organisation have taken place while the book was going through the press, when it was too late for alterations to be made. There are also a few firms of some importance which have not been sufficiently interested to associate themselves with the scheme, but generally speaking, the work is so complete within the lines marked out for it, and the omissions are so insignificant that it may be regarded as a reliable guide to the banks, insurance companies, manufacturers, commercial firms and shipowners of Finland.

The main part of the work, the business section, has been edited by Mr. F. Tiderman. secretary of the Helsingfors Stock Exchange.
