Team Finland in India

The Team Finland network promotes Finland and its interests abroad: the internationalisation of Finnish enterprises, investments in Finland, and the country brand. The Team Finland operating model brings together the key actors and services in these fields. The core of the network consists of the publicly funded organisations operating in these fields, such as the ministries, Finland’s network of diplomatic missions, Business Finland, national culture and science institutes, Finnvera, Finnfund, and the regional internationalisation services, built upon the ELY Centres.

The Team Finland network will help your enterprise become more international, grow, and succeed in the global market. For more information on services to companies seeking internationalisation, see:

Objectives of the Team Finland network in India

Finland and Finnish expertise enjoy good reputation in India as well as in Bangladesh which are covered by the Embassy of Finland in New Delhi. Relations between Finland and Bangladesh are good. Finland can offer expertise in sectors that are essential for the development of Bangladesh.

In the next few years, Team Finland Partners in India will devote attention to increasing Finnish business presence especially in energy generation, sustainable use of water, information and communications technology as well as health care and education. Special emphasis is given to the facilitation of market access for Finnish SMEs.

Team Finland makes Finland’s image in India and the other countries covered by the Embassy of Finland in New Delhi increasingly known built on the focal themes mentioned above, concrete flagship projects and a few fundamental messages. The central idea of the country brand is based on concrete examples of a welfare society making use of clean technologies. This is also the foundation in attracting investments from India and her neighboring countries to Finland. Team Finland Partners take advantage of their social media channels and high-quality publications in disseminating knowledge about Finland. Key target groups are national and state level policy-makers, business and science leaders and media personalities.

Team Finland encourages various players promoting Finland and Finnish business into increasingly better cooperation.
