Business, People, Events and Culture – All you need about Finland and Turkey in brief

“We are here for you!”

Hyvää uutta vuotta, mutlu yıllar, Happy New Year 2022 from Ankara!

Welcome to our second newsletter. Did you know that we have a Business Finland Office in Istanbul? Business Finland as a brand and as an organization is quite new. It was created when Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation (Tekes) and Finpro were merged in 2018. Read more about Business Finland’s services in Turkey here.

#TeamFinlandTurkey is not just us the people who work for Finland like Nilüfer and me. It is the whole community of Finns and Turks from honorary consuls to exchange students and businesses between our countries. Nilüfer has soon worked 20 years with Finland. I came to Turkey in 2010 for Erasmus Student Exchange to Istanbul. Thats why I was super excited to meet the students in December: you never know where an adventure abroad leads you to. Check out our video greetings and happy new year to you all.
