Welcome to Business Finland and Team Finland webinar to learn more about the trade environment and partnership opportunities in one of the fastest growing regions of the EU.

Driven by high manufacturing density and a growing demand for productivity increase, Central and Eastern Europe countries are transforming their factories to become smart, digital and automated.

Manufacturing is the growth engine for CEE markets. Manufacturing's share in gross value added in countries such as Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania has been noticeably increasing during last years. A number of production sites located in CEE creates a great pool of potential clients to Finnish companies providing products and services for different industries value chains – such as automotive, machinery, electronics, maritime, smart factories and many others. Solutions that are getting more and more attention include automation and robotics, condition monitoring and predictive maintenance, digital twins, AR/VR and many other digital tools that can optimize and increase the efficiency of production.

Apart from export opportunities in the manufacturing sector, Central and Eastern Europe has become very relevant from the perspective of management of supply chains for improved resilience. Strong manufacturing industry has made CEE markets an important hub on the map of global industry value chains.

The webinar will provide you with insights about Central and Eastern Europe from both export, as well as supply chain management perspective, focusing on the thriving manufacturing industry. Today, there are over 300 Finnish companies present in Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania – many of them have become important contributors to both Finland, as well as local economies. During the webinar, you will have the possibility to meet and ask questions towards two of them – Oras Group and Peikko Group.

Who should participate in the webinar?

  • Finnish suppliers of technologies and services towards manufacturing industry customers, especially factories from the automotive, machinery, battery, maritime sectors
  • Finnish companies from all sectors considering to expand their footprint and establish presence in CEE
  • Finnish companies from all sectors interested in doing business in CEE
