Finnish companies might be interested in participating in Turkey’s nuclear projects, said Finnish Prime Minister Jyrki Katainen.

“Turkey is a marvelous country to invest in,” he told Anatolia news agency in an interview this week.
Katainen met with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and 11 ministers during his two-day visit to the county, which ended April 19.

“It is possible for Finnish companies to be interested in your nuclear projects. For example, Fortum runs nuclear plants in Finland. I know well that Fortum is interested in hydropower plants in Turkey,” Katainen said.

Finland experienced in nuclear power production

Finland is an experienced country in nuclear power production, as well as in processing and managing the waste, Katainen said.

Commenting on the dramatic economic growth of the country, the visiting prime minister said Turkey had taken the right steps.

“One can see it looking at the economic growth, its inflation rate, increasing exports and foreign investments,” he said.

Some 40 Finnish companies accompanied the prime minister.

Katainen also said Erdoğan was right in his call for Finnish families to have three children.
