Zhejiang Province S&T Delegation will visit Finland in June with a business delegation. In connection with the visit, Business Finland is organizing a seminar and matchmaking event on Monday, June 5, 2023 at 08:30 – 13:00 at Team Finland House, Porkkalankatu 1.

After the pandemics closure, China has opened its borders. China is looking for new growth and competitiveness after the challenging time period e.g. through digital transformation of industries, reforming the healthcare with smart solutions and aiming for carbon neutrality by 2060. This provides increasing amount of collaboration opportunities for Finnish companies.

This event brings more than ten Zhejiang companies and research organizations to Finland especially from the areas of advanced manufacturing and healthcare & agetech. The event aims to help innovation-driven Finnish companies and research organizations to find potential partners or customers, and to establish solid R&D and business relationships between Finnish and Zhejiang companies for the annual joint innovation call and beyond.

Zhejiang Province, located in the eastern coast of China, belongs to the Yangtze River Delta (YRD) area that is one of the most prosperous areas in China. Zhejiang’s estimated GDP of year 2022 was around 7.77 trillion yuan (more than 1 trillion euro) and it is rated #4 province in China. The key industries in Zhejiang in the 14th Five-Year Plan include ICT, bio-medicine & healthcare, smart manufacturing, new energy & environmental protection, and smart cities.

Over the past years, Business Finland has established effective frameworks to support Finland-Zhejiang innovation collaboration. We provide information sharing, organize innovation workshops, do matchmaking, give ideas for the projects and fund the most promising applications.

Company profiles of the Zhejiang Province participants can be found here.
