Join this webinar and learn about current business dynamics in Switzerland; hear about the opportunities for Finnish companies; and get tips and tricks on how to approach Swiss prospect.
Switzerland may perhaps not be the first market that comes into the mind of a Finnish exporter. It is however worthwhile to have a look at it. Being an open economy, characterised by a high degree of flexibility and a clear focus on sustainability, innovation and high quality, the Swiss market may offer very interesting potential for Finnish products and services.
Is it then all so simple to approach Swiss potential partners? Before starting the prospection, a number of things need to be taken into account though, especially because Switzerland is not a member of the European Union. These issues will be discussed during a webinar.
Themes to be covered:
1. The current business dynamics in Switzerland
2. Opportunities for Finnish companies
3. Tips and tricks on how to approach Swiss prospects.
The event is organised in co-operation with Finland Chamber of Commerce, Finland-Switzerland Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise Europe Network, Helsinki Region Chamber of Commerce.
