Switzerland – from Myths to Facts and Possibilities. How can my company access the Swiss Market? 7.11.2017

Switzerland is geographically in the center of Europe and represents an open, highly competitive, and innovative business environment. Switzerland’s unique federal system of cantons is a boon to competitiveness, with the 26 cantons allowed to set their own attraction agenda. Digitalisation is a core strategic issue for the finance and banking sector and an important part of many other sectors like health care, too. The Swiss appreciate quality and are willing to pay for it. This seminar aims at business people who are interested in increasing their knowledge of the Swiss market, and in opening up business opportunities for Finnish companies. Join us and learn what Switzerland can offer to your company! 

The seminar was co-organized by Finpro, FinnCham network, Chamber of Commerce Finland-Switzerland, Enterprise Europe Network and the Helsinki Region Chamber of Commerce. The event was hosted by Dr. Jani Kaarlejärvi, Co-Founder, Business Meeting Park Oy.
