The Baltics' accession: Finnish perspectives.

This chapter examines the implications for the Finnish tourism industry of the Baltic countries' accession to the EU. First, the relationships between Finland and Estonia, and between Finland and Russia, are briefly introduced. In the second section, reflections on transformations and EU enlargement in the Baltic Sea rim are offered at a general level. This is followed by a brief introduction to multi-level, cross-border cooperation in the area, focusing on tourism development. Development of tourism flows in the Baltics and Finland are then compared, and a short introduction to the Baltics and Finland as tourist destinations is presented. The chapter then looks at some trans-national projects in the field of infrastructure development. Finally, results are presented from interviews with Finnish tourism practitioners on the implications of the Baltics' accession.
