Minister for Development Cooperation and Foreign Trade Ville Skinnari visits Stockholm
Minister Skinnari will visit Stockholm on 31 March–1 April. The purpose of the visit is to promote both countries’ access on a growth track in international trade after COVID-19. Worldwide and European recovery measures offer excellent growth opportunities for Finnish and Swedish companies when they explore solutions related to green transition, digitalisation and development of industries.
“The relations between Finland and Sweden are strong and diverse. Together with companies, we now want to create sustainable growth for this decade. The way out of the pandemic will open up significant new business opportunities in Europe and worldwide. However, competition is extremely tough. Finland and Sweden have much to do and much to win together,” Minister Skinnari says.
While in Stockholm, Minister Skinnari will have meetings with Swedish Minister for Business, Industry and Innovation Ibrahim Baylan and Minister for International Development Cooperation Per Olsson Fridh. He will also meet representatives of the Swedish business sector and of Swedish companies. Minister Skinnari will also meet Chair of the Committee on Foreign Affairs Kenneth G Forslund and Chair of the Committee on EU Affairs Pyry Niemi from the Swedish Parliament (Riksdag).
