Objectives of the Team Finland network in Kosovo
The economic and trade relations between Finland and Kosovo are still quite poor. The objective of the Finnish embassy in Pristina is to foster the Finnish companies' possibilities to promote trade in the long run. This includes for example promoting and marketing the Finnish know-how in different events. With the help of the ongoing Twinning projects the recognizability of Finnish companies can be promoted.
The Team Finland network in Kosovo works in an adaptive way and it is well fitted to the local conditions. Public diplomacy is an important part in promoting export and trade. The reputation of the Finnish embassy as an active and versatile actor in Kosovo has increased in all aspects of the society thanks to the development policies and public diplomacy that is practiced through EU instruments.
In addition to the embassy, Finland is also involved in the important field of crises and civilian crises management. With Twinning and TAIEX projects Finland supports local governance and helps Kosovo to develop its readiness for EU integration.
