Foreign affiliates cover 15-16% of the personnel of the enterprises operating in Finland. 
 
The share has remained roughly at the same level over the last five years. Turnover has, in turn, stabilised around 20%, according to the release. 
 
However, the shares vary considerably between industries. In the main industries, theshares vary from 2-35%.  
 
The nationality of an enterprise is recorded on the basis of the institutional unit that controls it. “Usually this is an enterprise, located abroad, that owns over 50% of the enterprise, either directly or indirectly,” the release says.
