Business Finland together with Accelerated Growth for SMEs in Zambia (AGS) Programme invites you to a breakfast event on Thursday, 9 June, 2022 at 08:00 - 11:00 at the Team Finland House, Porkkalankatu 1, 00180 Helsinki.

Are you looking for new business opportunities in developing markets in Africa? The Government of Zambia seeks to manage and enhance forest products and services to mitigate climate change, boost income generation, poverty reduction and job creation, and protect biodiversity. A group of leading Zambia companies in forestry, circular economy and renewable energy sectors are on a mission to initiate new collaboration options with Finnish companies. Both sectors are essential in tackling local development challenges and offer scalable opportunities for Finnish companies to form new partnerships with Zambian entities. Finnish public funding instruments are in place to support in levering those joint opportunities.

We are looking forward to your registration and welcoming you to our event to hear about business opportunities in Zambia and explore collaboration opportunities with Zambian forestry and renewable energy companies.
