Join our four day Trade Mission to Finland. The mission will be based in Helsinki, however travel to other parts of the country may be necessary for meetings. This is a multi-sectoral mission, so if you are interested in exporting to the region apply below and find out if your company is eligible.
Companies from Northern Ireland already export over £36.6m in goods and services to Finland and the Invest NI Trade Mission represents an excellent opportunity for companies wanting to develop business in this country.

Our Trade Team in Belfast will be on-hand with advice and guidance to prepare for the mission. Working with our Trade Advisers in-market, we can provide tailored market research and provide participants with planned meetings to introduce their products and service to key players in both markets. The cost of this service is heavily subsidised by Invest NI and would be £625 +VAT.
In addition, our trade advisor for Finland will be in Belfast on the 13-15 June, should you wish to arrange a 1:1 meeting. Please contact Rachael Montgomery, on 028 9069 8128, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your interest.
