Responsibilities of mission

The Embassy’s mission is to promote Finland’s relations with Egypt and Sudan, where it is side-accredited.

As part of the Team Finland network, the Embassy promotes the commercial relations between Finland and Egypt, the internationalization of Finnish companies, and foreign investments in Finland.

The Embassy offers services to and oversees the interests of Finnish citizens in its area of jurisdiction, and assists distressed Finns in crises situations. The Embassy follows the security situation in Egypt and Sudan in cooperation with other Nordic and EU countries.

Finland’s development cooperation with Egypt is considered to be part of Finland’s regional development cooperation in the Middle East and North Africa. The regional development cooperation funds are channeled through international organizations and financial institutions. Locally Finland supports the development of Egyptian civil society through the Embassy’s Local Cooperation Fund.

Furthermore, the Embassy promotes Finland’s country image through its communications, and fosters networking between Egyptian and Finnish citizens, business communities and institutions.
