Team Finland network in Egypt
The Team Finland network promotes issues that are important to Finland abroad: the internationalisation of Finnish companies, foreign investments in Finland and Finland's country image. The network brings together actors and services in these fields and strives to provide businesses with a smooth service chain, ranging from advice services to financing.
The core of the network consists of state-funded organizations in these fields, such as ministries, the Embassy network, Business Finland (former Finpro and Tekes), Finnvera, Finnfund, Finnpartnership, Finnish Cultural and Scientific Institutes, and regional internationalization services based on ELY Centers.
The team Finland network helps your company to internationalise, grow and succeed in the global market. More information on services for internationalising companies: https://team.finland.fi/en/services .
Team Finland targets in Egypt
Finland's political and economic relations with Egypt are good. There is interest in Finnish expertise in Egypt, especially in the fields of high technology, environment and education. Egypt's consumer market is the largest in the Middle East and offers plenty of opportunities for Finnish companies. Finland has a lot of expertise to offer particularly in the areas of circular economy, energy, ICT, education and health technology. (Read more about the trade and economic relations between Finland and Egypt here.)
The Team Finland actors in Cairo seek to promote Finnish companies' access to the market, and to create new partnerships in the region. Finland has had long-lasting and effective commercial partnerships in Egypt, for example in the forest industry and in the IT and construction sectors.
Egypt's economic development is supported through commercial economic cooperation and institutional cooperation, as well as through financing regional programs implemented by international organizations. Furthermore, up until 2007 Finland had fruitful bilateral development cooperation with Egypt, which has provided a good basis for developing trade relations.
The Embassy in Cairo promotes Finnish know-how and markets Finland's strengths in Egypt by sharing information about Finland. Events and press relations play an important role in public diplomacy. Moreover, we share information through our website, Facebook page, as well as our Twitter and Instagram accounts.
Team Finland promotes building connections between Finnish and Egyptian research institutes and educational institutions. These contacts help strengthen Finland’s positive image in Egypt.
