BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES FOR FINNISH COMPANIES: DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION IN MARITIME INDUSTRY

Welcome to join the Team Finland business delegation led by Mr. Mika Lintilä, Minister of Economic Affairs, and travel to Washington DC on January 14 – 16, 2019.

The delegation visit will bring together Finland-based and American companies with public sector organizations and innovation networks. Digitalization is transforming the global maritime industry and creating business opportunities for Finnish companies in the United States. Both U.S. and Finnish marine ecosystems will benefit from effective cooperation, as well as joint development of state-of-the art digital technologies. Combining a strong, established maritime ecosystem with world-leading capabilities in digitalization, censoring and wireless technology, Finland is a global forerunner in the development of digital solutions, autonomous and remotely operated vessels and energy efficient solutions to mitigate climate change.
