Are you interested in learning about the vast market opportunities in Uzbekistan and finding relevant local business partners for building your company’s presence in the Uzbek education sector? The Finland-Uzbekistan SDG Booster starting in September gives your company the possibility to meet and initiate cooperation with local education sector companies and other stakeholders.

The SDG Booster is organized by Finnpartnership together with the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland, the Ministry of Education and Culture in Finland, the Education Finland programme, the Finnish National Agency for Education, the State Inspectorate for Supervision of Quality in Education under the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the Honorary Consulate of Finland in Uzbekistan and UNICEF Uzbekistan with the support from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Uzbekistan.

In practice, the SDG Booster is a set of consecutive joint workshops where we delve into current opportunities presented by the Uzbek markets, leverage from a wide range of participants and their offering to develop solutions targeting the identified opportunities with the clear goal to kick-start cooperation, consortia, and new business!

The workshops are facilitated by leading experts, and the organizers can provide financial and other support for the future projects that are developed during the SDG Booster. Business Partnership Support can be used for the first steps (e.g., feasibility study, business plan, environmental and social impact assessment, piloting) of projects aiming to start long term business in Uzbekistan.


The SDG Booster starts on September 28th, with a joint meeting between the Finnish and Uzbek participants. After this initial meeting, two workshops (October 12th and November 9th) for the outlining of solutions and joint projects will be arranged. The workshop on 12th of October is intended for Finnish companies only and the development of joint offerings.

The participants are expected to join all three sessions, if possible. The entire SDG Booster will be arranged digitally in Zoom and the Miro platform.
