    Team Finland in Singapore

    The Team Finland network promotes Finland's external economic relations and country brand, the internationalisation of Finnish companies as well as foreign investment directed at Finland. Its aim is to intensify cooperation between Finnish and Singaporean players in these sectors.

    The core of the Team Finland network consists of the Ministry of Employment and the Economy, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Education and Culture, as well as the publicly funded organisations and overseas networks whose performance they oversee. The Team Finland network is steered by the Government. More than 70 local teams around the world handle its activities abroad.

    Fundamental changes in the global economy have led to a situation in which the well-being of Finns depends ever more strongly on matters outside Finland's borders. We must be able to influence the operating environment abroad, and to support the making of choices abroad that are advantageous to us. We can accomplish this best through cooperation.
