Nokia said on Thursday it had decided to cut 353 jobs in its home market Finland this year due to a weak global network market and as part of its global cost-savings plan.

The figure came down from the company's initial plan to reduce up to 425 jobs.

Under the finalised plan, 283 of the positions will be cut from the company's mainstay networks business and 70 from its Technologies unit, which includes Nokia's licensing operations and digital health business.
