Tickets are now available for the Team Finland Launch in Melbourne, which will be held on 2 May 2012.
Team Finland is an exciting new initiative of the Finnish government. It will change the way Finland and Finnish companies are promoted, both within Finland an abroad.
Team Finland was born out of a review of the way Finland’s external economic relations were being handled in the context of the internationalisation of business carried out last year by a working party chaired by Matti Alahuhta, President and CEO of Kone Corporation.
Their report was presented to Prime Minister Jyrki Katainen, Minister of Economic Affairs Jyri Häkämies and Minister for European Affairs and Foreign Trade Alexander Stubb at Finlandia Hall on 19 January 2012. The working party found the current system of trade promotion was siloed and fragmented, and put forward an alternative network-like structure.
Join the FACC, the Embassy of Finland and Finpro at the launch the Team Finland concept in Melbourne. There will be short presentations from the Chamber and Finpro, followed by an official launch by the Finnish Ambassador to Australia, Her Excellency Mrs Maija Lähteenmäki.
Tickets are $80 (members) and $100 (non-members), which includes a a true Danish smörgåsbord meal from the Danish Club. Sponsors and corporate members may take a table of 10 for $720, and invite their customers, suppliers and staff.
