Responsibilities of mission

Turkey is an important trade partner and one of the key emerging markets for Finland. The regional importance of Turkey offers many possibilities to develop business relations also with countries in the Middle East and North Africa, Southern Caucasus, and Central Asia.

As a part of the Foreign Service of Finland, the Embassy of Finland in Ankara oversees Finnish economic and cultural interests in the host state. The Embassy works in cooperation with Finpro Trade center in Istanbul and other actors forming Team Finland network in Turkey. General aim of the network is to actively contribute to the image of Finland as an open and creative forerunner in technology and as a functional society, which is committed to equality, education, and environmental values.
