Finnish Week of Business in Zambia on 11 – 17 April 2021  –  Save the Date!

The Embassy of Finland in Lusaka, together with its partners, will once again organize the annual ‘Finnish Week of Business’ in Zambia on 11 – 17 April 2021. As in previous years, the week will coincide with the annual Agritech Expo event.

The programme for 2021 is envisaged to include tailor-made B2B and other meetings, workshops, participation at the Agritech Expo, and networking. At  the 2020 virtual Finnish Week of Business, sectors such as agriculture, forestry, energy, ICT, education and waste management from Finland were represented. Results to date have included direct sales, local partners, and increased local presence of Finnish companies in Zambia. In recent years, about 20 Finnish companies have participated in the Week’s programme.

Agritech Expo Zambia is the biggest annual Expo in Zambia, which despite its name attracts a wide range of business sectors. In 2019, it brought together around 20 000 professionals, 240 local and international exhibitors and 7 international country pavilions including the Nordic pavilion. Next year’s Expo will take place on 15 – 17 April 2021: read more here.

More information on the Finnish Week of business will be shared later. The Embassy will endeavour to confirm the format of the programme as soon as possible, considering the Covid-19 situation in Zambia and internationally.
