Welcome to India - Finland Business Lunch!
The goal of the event is to identify and discuss business opportunities and investment potential between companies in the Tampere Region and India. The event is a unique package of information and business & networking potential with business in India. Don't miss the opportunity!
However, participants from other parts of Finland interested in business in or with India are also welcome. This event is first of its kind in Tampere with the direct involvement of the Embassy of India. The Embassy will also promote "Make in India" programme launched by Government of India and provide information and contacts in the scope of public and private sector matters and regarding Foreign Direct Investment.
As per the latest Finland - India Business Guide 2016 published by Team Finland and the Embassy of Finland in India, special emphasis needs to be given on the Indian market access for Finnish SMEs. Similarly, Finland has also been acknowledged as a competitive destination for investment by Indian companies. Finland’s focus on Asian markets is yet rising although the most important trade partners for Finland are other EU countries. However, considering India’s market size and business potential, the Finnish investments and exports still need to grow.
Success and caution stories about Finnish businesses in India will also be presented by Venkata Gandikota, Founder & President, The Nordic Frugal Innovation Society ry.
His Excellency, Ambassador of India to Finland and Estonia, Shri Ashok Kumar Sharma will grace the occasion.
The event is supported by Tampere Chamber of Commerce, New Factory and ELY-Keskus. They will interact with the participants to provide the necessary support for strengthening Indo-Finnish business relations.
