Business Finland is organizing a Trade Mission to Seoul, South Korea on 24-27 September 2024. This delegation would present a significant opportunity for collaboration and exploration of synergies between Finland and South Korea, focusing on hydrogen and derivatives value chains.

Strategic Trade Relationships: South Korea's established position as a leader in the hydrogen market, with its ambitious Hydrogen Economy Roadmap and significant investments in hydrogen infrastructure and technology, offers Finland an opportunity to engage with advanced hydrogen initiatives and learn from South Korea's experiences.

Hydrogen Economy Leadership: South Korea's leadership in the hydrogen economy provides Finland an excellent opportunity to collaborate on cutting-edge hydrogen projects and technologies.

Collaboration on Green Initiatives: Finland's focus on sustainability aligns with South Korea's clean energy goals. Collaborative projects could support the decarbonization efforts of both countries, contributing to their emissions reduction targets.

Technology and Investment Opportunities: South Korea is seeking international collaborations to secure hydrogen supplies and advance technologies throughout the entire value chain. Finland's participation could facilitate technology exchange, joint research, and attract investments in clean energy projects.

Business Finland provides market advice and support in relations building in South Korea. This delegation is embedded in the activity plan under the Hydrogen and Batteries Program which facilitates companies' approach and international partnerships.
