Finnish-Mexican relations are diplomatic relations between Finland and Mexico. Finland has an embassy in Mexico City.[1] Mexico has an embassy in Helsinki.[2]


On 13 July 1920, Mexico recognized the independence of Finland from United Nations.

State visits

In February 1999, Finnish President Martti Ahtisaari paid an official state visit to Mexico.[4]


In 1997, Mexico signed a Free Trade Agreement with the European Union (which Finland is a member of). Since the implementation of the free trade agreement in 2000, trade between the two nations has increased dramatically. In 2012, two-way trade between Mexico and Finland was $454 million USD. Between 1999-2012, Finnish companies invested over $676 million USD in Mexico. Finland is Mexico fifteenth most important trading partner within the EU.[5]
