We’re taking over the country…
A record number of people have moved to Finland this year. In total, the population has increased by about 18,000 people, or 0.4 percent.
According to Statistics Finland, about 21,000 foreigners made Finland their home in 2005. This is 700 more than the previous year and more since Finland gained independence in 1917.
Meanwhile, the number of people moving away from Finland has decreased. Approximately 5,255,000 people currently live in Finland.
…I wonder what the Swedish-speakers would say if we English-speakers out numbered them in Finland?
