Team Finland in South Africa

We offer Finnish companies advisory services such as information on market opportunities or on regulatory environment. We are able to help you to open doors by providing contacts with local authorities and arranging prestige services. Participating trade delegations brings you visibility and access to local companies, authorities and also media. Ambassador's residence may be used for networking or promotional activities. 

Objectives of the Team Finland network in South Africa are increasing trade between Finland and South Africa, attracting new Finnish companies to the South African markets and attracting investments from South Africa to Finland. We also do our best to strengthen the Finnish country image in South Africa. 

We encourage all Finnish companies interested in South Africa, Botswana, Mauritius or Lesotho, and those already operating in these markets, to contact either the Embassy or Business Finland office in Johannesburg. We will gladly help to boost your business and Finnish exports!
