INVITATION (Please click here for a pdf version)

The Finland Pakistan Business Council and Team Finland have a pleasure to invite you to 2nd FINLAND PAKISTAN BUSINESS SUMMIT 2015 organized in ISLAMABAD 22 APRIL, 2015

Pakistan and Finland have enjoyed good relations over the decades. Business connections and bilateral trade between the countries is just entering a new phase. In February 2014 over 100 delegates joined the first ever Finland-Pakistan Business Summit in Islamabad, Pakistan. The first ever Summit in 2014 was a big success and now it is time for the second round.

The 2nd Finland Pakistan Business Summit will engage both governments and business people to connect for investment possibilities, new business partners and suppliers, new opportunities. The event has two special focus areas, both having key role in the development of Pakistan: Cleantech & Sustainability and Disaster Management & Technology. Similar to last year’s event the core of the Summit is strictly new business and growth and therefore the event will also host professionally pre-tailored business meetings and networking between Finnish and Pakistani companies with expected participation of around 200 people in Islamabad.

Businesses in Pakistan and Finland have a lot to offer to each other and business people are really having the key role to support new development in the whole society. Therefore we feel that we are all privileged and responsible to work together for the New Growth in bilateral trade, cooperation and investments and that is why the whole Finland Pakistan Business Summit was created. In addition to the Main Event the days before and after are always reserved for any pre-tailored detailed meetings between Finnish and Pakistan companies.

Even Finland is relatively small but agile country with the population of just 5.5 million; Finland is one of the key players in the Euro Zone but also inside the whole European Union, one of the biggest trading partners of Pakistan. In addition to the EU market, through Finland and Finnish companies also Pakistani businesses and industries can enjoy access to the whole Nordic region, an area with very high consumer and corporate purchasing power. Over the last few years, Pakistan has faced a lot of difficult challenges, which have been widely reported by the international media in such a way that it has left country’ emerging and promising business and investment opportunities in shadows. Pakistan is a multiparty democracy and the sixth biggest country in the world, which has a population of almost 200 million with a growing middle class. Certainly Pakistan provides huge business opportunities for Finnish companies.

The fee for Finnish companies for two days event is € 1.890,00 (excl. VAT) and covers all costs of the event including also accommodation for two nights in Executive Floor rooms at a five star hotel Marriott Islamabad, all logistics, transportation and security services in Islamabad, all visa arrangement and costs as well as pre-tailored bilateral business meetings. For any wishes for a longer stay there is special accommodation fee with all professional practical arrangements available for Summit’s delegates at Marriott. Please check here for financial support available for Finnish SMEs interested to browse the Pakistani market. The registration is free of charge for Pakistani companies but pre-registration is mandatory.  Registration form and additional details available here.

The Finland Pakistan Business Council (FPBC), is a non-profit organization supporting the business networking and connections between Finland and Pakistan. FPBC was established already in 1985 and operates actively in both countries. See details on http://fpbc.fi or http://fpbc.org.pk
