Finland–ASEAN Trade Association was founded in Helsinki in 1993 with a purpose to promote trade, investment and economic co-operation between Finland and ASEAN countries. Compared with other trade associations, Finland-ASEAN Trade Association is an umbrella to many differing countries on the area: Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, Kambodzha and Brunei. They show a variety of cultural, political and economically differences, forming – however – a very interesting mixture of possibilities for Finnish companies.
The goal of the trade association is to keep the members informed of all countries as well as of any specific individual country of interest.
The trade association organises luncheon meetings and seminars 3-4 times annually, thus providing an excellent channel for getting new contacts, information and sharing experiences. Companies being already present in one of these countries and also companies starting their activities in the area benefit greatly from these contacts and expert views provided by experienced business people, ambassadors and commercial counsellors, who have lived and worked in these countries. They all provide an excellent source of first-hand information.
Membership fees in 2017: SME’s 100,- / large enterprises 200,- / individual members 30,-.
Chairman of the Association is Mr Nicholas Oksanen.
The secretariat of the Finland-ASEAN Trade Association is placed at Finland Chamber of Commerce.
