This week, the Consulate General of Finland in St. Petersburg, together with the Finnish-Russian Chamber of Commerce, organized the event for Finnish entrepreneurs to localize business in Russia. Representatives of Finnish companies interested in localization of production in Russia were invited to the event.

On September 11, the Consulate General of Finland held a seminar “The potential and conditions for doing business in the North-West region of Russia”. Such issues as the market potential and risks of doing business in Russia, reliable partnership in doing business, opportunities of financing Finnish projects in Russia, partnership patterns from the point of view of regulatory compliance and legal security, were discussed at the meeting. Vladislav Talanin presented the Greenstate Industrial Park and made a presentation.

On September 12, an excursion to Greenstate Industrial Park was organized. During the excursion, the participants had the opportunity to get practical experience and to see with their own eyes how foreign companies are localized in the Leningrad Region. YIT specialists showed the territory and capabilities of the park, and one of the residents of the Industrial Park, ATRIA Finnish company
(Pit-Product), invited guests to visit their production site and organized a tasting session.

“The number of Finnish companies who attended the event on localization of Finnish business in Russia this year is more than at a similar seminar held last year. No doubt that this is an evidence of raised interest. We are always ready to welcome guests and interested investors. For us, this is not the first experience of a group tour. We are very pleased to show our park, talk about the existing opportunities and share experiences with those who are really interested. It is especially pleasant and important for us to meet guests from Finland, given the background of our company, as well as the fact that several Finnish companies have chosen Greenstate – PONSSE, DERMOSIL, ATRIA, TIKKURILA”, commented Vladislav Talanin, Commercial Real Estate Sales Director.
