Business partners and visibility in Malaysia – seize our Doing Business with Finland seminars in Kuala Lumpur & George Town, Malaysia


Join Finnpartnership’s Doing Business with Finland seminars in October and start expanding your business to Malaysia! Arranged together with local Finnish embassies and Business Finland offices, the seminars provide an excellent opportunity for Finnish companies to get their business activities started in Southeast Asia. The two seminars in Malaysia are also organized in cooperation with Finnish National Agency for Education, and therefore the main focus sector in these seminars is education sector, but also ICT (especially in George Town).  The seminar brings together a large group of relevant local companies, business entities and government officials to meet Finnish companies. Arranged since 2007, the Doing Business with Finland –seminars usually lead to dozens of promising business discussions and partnerships getting started.

The seminar in George Town, Malaysia will be held on Tuesday, 16th October and seminar in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia will be held on Thursday, 18th of October.
