  • Help companies in establishing connections
  • Offer information about the markets and opportunities in each country
  • Support in questions related to entering new markets.

The transformation of the world economy has led to a situation in which the well-being of Finns depends more and more on factors beyond Finnish borders. We need to be able to influence the operational environment abroad and support that decisions made there are also favorable for us. The best way to do this is through co-operation.
