Finland to spend €10.75 million for international training, exercises

THE Finnish Defense Forces laid out its international training and exercise plan for 2025 which for the first time since the Nordic country joined NATO on April 4, 2023.

The country’s defense planning includes participation in 115 international training events and exercises next year.

The initiative will cost the military an estimated 10.75 million euros.

The participation is more than twice of the annual activities joined by the military given that Finnish troops engage in only between 60 to 70 international exercises and training events every year.

Finland has also opened negotiations for deepening defense cooperation with Norway, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States, according to the Finnish Ministry of Defense.
