Team Finland in Zambia

The Team Finland network promotes the internationalization and growth of Finnish enterprises, foreign 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. Team Finland based in Zambia offers services also in Zimbabwe and Malawi. In the region, the areas of Finnish business interests include among others renewable energy, agriculture and forestry, construction, ICT, education as well as mining and environmental technology.​​​​
