BUSINESS DELEGATION to Kazakhstan 24.-27.4.2018

Business Oulu is coordinating the Finnish Business Hub Astana, which serves the companies in our region in matters related to the markets in Kazakhstan. Kazakhstan is the most vibrant of the Central-Asian countries with its constantly growing economy (GDP). The country’s desire to increase foreign investments and to invest in its own development outside of the traditional oil and gas sector has opened up new business opportunities for Finnish companies as well. Potential is present in sectors such as cleantech and energy, healthcare, education and innovation systems in particular.

Business Oulu has arranged a business delegation trip to Astana at the end of April. Companies from Oulu will participate this trip with Educational and Cultural services of City of Oulu. Jussi Haukkamaa and Suvi Ilvesviita from PINO Network will also participate to the delegation. “During this trip we have a great opportunity to present our network and its services offered by our member companies to the top administration of the City of Astana and Kazakhstan Ministry of Education.” says Jussi Haukkamaa.

Head of the delegation will be Mika Penttilä, the director of Educational and Cultural services of City of Oulu. If your company is interested in doing business in Kazakhstan contact Jussi Haukkamaa, +358 40 195 5446 or Suvi Ilvesviita +358 50 310 4082.
