Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment (MEAE), together with other Team Finland actors, promotes the internationalisation and exports of Finnish companies, and cooperation between Finland and China in the fields of innovation and investments.
MEAE fosters and builds relations with its counterparts in China. The objective is to create networks between Finnish and Chinese companies, various players in the field of innovation, and administration in order to build a foundation for broader trade relations. In addition, MEAE offers support to Finnish companies in matters related to the Chinese business environment.
MEAE coordinates the Science and Technology Cooperation Agreement between Finland and China, the Memorandum of Understanding on energy, and the cooperation groups that implement these agreements. They promote joint projects that provide opportunities for Finnish companies to demonstrate their expertise and to attract Chinese partners. In addition, MEAE and the Chinese Ministry of Commerce support the Committee for Innovative Business Cooperation between Finland and China. Sectoral working groups meet under the auspices of this Committee, currently focusing on energy, clean air, forestry, and maritime logistics.
