Looking for new business opportunities abroad? Join a Team Finland high-level business delegation to the country where you want to do business

Finpro organizes high-level business delegation visits for Finnish companies in cooperation with other Team Finland partners. The goal of these visits is to open doors, create contacts and improve networks for you in markets, which are of interest to you.

These business delegations are normally invited to join the high-level visits of the President of the Republic, the Prime Minister of Finland or Finnish government ministers as well as high-level officials from various ministries. By participating in delegations, you can foster your internationalization strategy by building and reinforcing relationships with partners and decision-makers in the country where you want to do business.
