Organizer: Trade Representation of Russia in Finland

Topics for discussion: The Finnish construction industry has been the driver of the national economy for the last five years, reaching up to 5% per year. Dozens of landmark projects were launched and implemented (the OODI library, the new campus of the University of Helsinki, the residential quarters Tripla and Redi, the quarter of wooden houses in the center of Helsinki, Wood city, etc.).

At the same time, the production of building materials in Russia has reached a qualitatively new level, which allowed domestic companies to confidently enter the relatively closed and highly competitive Finnish market and other European markets.

At the round table, representatives of leading Finnish construction companies will talk about their business, the use of the latest materials and technologies and the possibilities of Russian suppliers to integrate into international production chains. Successful examples of Russian companies entering the Finnish market will be considered.
