Key Opportunity Sectors in Australia for Finnish Exporters

Are you thinking about expanding your business internationally? Does overseas expansion sound interesting to you? If your product or service is a success at home, expanding into Australian market offers you great new potential.

You are more than welcome to join the event hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Finland, in cooperation with Finpro, the Finland Australia Business Council, and the Australian Embassy. Listen to a number of presentations and learn more about business opportunities for your company in Australia. The event will focus on sectors, such as Health and Waste and Digital/Smart Cities.

Investments in healthcare services and infrastructure are in high demand in Australia, as the country is seeking ways to deliver innovative models of care to the public and private healthcare sectors. Its growing population and cities are evolving quickly. As a result, the Federal government is looking for solutions that enhance their security, livability, and sustainability. Australia is also one of the countries which produce the most municipal waste per person in the world. Therefore new technologies and services are needed to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills.

The event will be held on 4th May in Helsinki. It will include examples of potential clients, their business expectations, and a lot of useful information on how to succeed on the Australian market.
