Visas and Nokia's US$350 million tax bill will be on the agenda when the Indian and Finnish commerce and trade official meet this week.
India is likely to push for a faster and easier visa process for its citizens entering Finland, the Hindu reported on Tuesday.
"The Minister is likely to point out that given Finland’s need for a high quality work force, it would be in its own interest to facilitate at least the movement of intra-corporate transferees and other skilled personnel from India," a commerce department official told The Hindu.
Finland will likely take up a US$350 million (20 billion rupees) tax notice served to Nokia, which relates to royalties on software downloaded on devices manufactured at Nokia's Chennai plant. However, India is ready to defend the tax claims, the commerce official said.
