Urbanization is a focus area in Finland, as the bigger cities are growing at a rapid pace. In fact there are currently 14 growth areas and by the year 2040, there will be built around 760.000 new apartments, indication a fast growing market. However, the new constructions needs to be keeping up with the latest technologies and solutions. Likewise, the Finns value and nurture the environment, thus making it highly important for them to build green and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in construction environments.
Helsinki has taken the lead in trying to be the Nordic restaurant capital. The ambitions are high and there are many sources of inspiration. The strongest is the new Nordic cuisine, where local raw materials are in the center of a culinary experience. Danish gourmet experiences are world known, thus increasing interest in the Danish gastronomic experiences. Additionally, a recent change in the alcohol legislation makes it possible for grocery stores to sell beverages with an alcohol content of 5.5% instead of the former 4.7%. Hereby, there will be more openings for the Danish companies to enter the Finnish market.
Finland is not only building the world's largest cruise ships, special vessels and icebreakers it is also home to the busiest passenger port in Europe with over 12 million passengers yearly, all which shows a market that is full of vast opportunities, which needs to be exploited. Globally, Denmark is known for its high quality and innovative solutions, it is therefore a unique chance for Danish companies to get a "slice of the cake" by joining the business delegation.
