Finnish organizations keep on taking an active approach to the EU-China BT Fair
Finland and Finnish organizations keep on taking an active approach to the EU-China BT Fairand to the opportunities offered by the rapid development of Western China. In this year’s fair, Finland is introducing around 20 private and public organizations to the guests of the event. The participants include among others the representatives of Finpro, organization promoting the internationalization of Finnish companies, of the Finnish Technology and Innovation Agency (Tekes) and of Finnish Environmental Cluster for China (FECC), as well as of Finland at Expo 2010 organization that brings the Finnish message of Expo 2010 from Shanghai to the fair.
Finland is one of the most advanced countries in the world in creating sustainable solutions. At the 2009 EU-China Business & Technology Cooperation Fair IV, this competence is represented by several regional business clusters and companies from Finland. Their products span from the non-wood and non-wood-based process technologies and production solutions to designing and supplying machinery and process systems for electrical and electronic scrap and construction waste. The Finland Pavilion at the Shanghai Expo 2010 provides one concrete example of sustainable solutions in construction. After the Expo, the Finnish pavilion, “Binghu” will be dismantled and moved to another place in China or elsewhere to be re-assembled for later use.
Finnish relations with Chengdu, Sichuan and the Western China area have developed rapidly during the past few years. For example, several Finnish companies like Nokia Corporation, world’s leader in mobile solutions, have established themselves in Chengdu. Last year, after the tragic earthquake in Sichuan and the neighbouring areas, Finnish companies and individuals quickly came together and launched a project to build a primary school to the Sichuan area. The school was opened on September 29 in Guanghan city and will serve around 200 children from four villages.
