Finland and Sweden have a long history of cooperation within business, politics as well as within the area of defence.

The Association of Finnish Defence and Aerospace Industries and The Swedish Security and Defense Industry Association together with Team Finland are organizing a Defence and Security Industry visit to Stockholm on September 28-29, 2021.

The visit program will include a networking event with Swedish counterparts at the residence of the Ambassador of Finland to Sweden, as well as a high-level Defence and Security Industry seminar.

The goal of the high-level visit is to share the latest industry insights as well as to create connections between companies operating especially in the land, sea and C5ISTAR domains. During the two days, Swedish and Finnish companies will learn about future development plans as well as upcoming procurement for the armed forces. Besides this, there will be opportunities for knowledge-sharing and 1:1 meetings with potential business partners.
