Team Finland Egypt and our aims

Our main objective is to help Finnish companies increase their export to Egypt. We believe it is best achieved by building connections between Finnish companies and Egyptian customers and by disseminating information on Finnish know-how and high-quality products. Finnish business partnerships are highly appreciated in Egypt and we wish to see a larger number or Finnish companies doing business with Egypt and benefiting from it.

Business breakfasts are events where Egyptian guests can meet representatives of Finnish companies and other organizations remotely to share views on the market development, to support the country branding and as well to distribute well-defined information to the right target groups. Participants represent mainly companies and government officials who are interested in Finnish offerings. Presentations cover key sectors of interest such as education, ICT, energy, health care and ad hoc subjects representing a particular business opportunity.

Egyptian-Finnish Business Council Board Meetings are informal bimonthly meetings where representatives of Finnish companies operating in Egypt have an opportunity to have their voices heard.

Meetings with the Business Community are an important instrument to connect with Egyptian businesses, to develop and maintain a strong knowledge base of the Egyptian market. The invitees are leaders of Egyptian companies that are or have the potential to become customers to Finnish export industries.

Seminars are high profile events organized twice a year focusing on a particular sector. In 2023 the seminars will cover circular economy and education.
