Business Finland to drive export – new opportunities sought all the way in Africa

Innovation financing centre Tekes and provider of internationalisation services Finpro will be merged at the beginning of next year into Business Finland Oy which will provide services for promoting export, investments and tourism. The change will increase embassies’ responsibilities in promoting export as ambassadors will become Team Finland country managers. Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Kai Mykkänen would look for new investment opportunities in Eastern Africa where growth is quick and there is demand for clean energy and wastewater treatment in which Finnish businesses have know-how. Finland’s goal is to double SME exports by 2020.
