On 25 February 2021, B3CF held a Virtual Trade Mission to Scotland, organised with the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce.
The aim of the Trade Mission was to increase trade and cooperation between Scottish and Finnish businesses.
Thank you to all participants for joining. It was amazing to hear some very interesting conversations and hopefully the beginnings of fruitful future collaboration.
Special thanks to the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce team for all their hard work in organising such a great virtual event, so that we can continue our international cooperation even in these strange times.
The schedule of the day included:
- Market Briefing Session including welcoming remarks by LolaNicolas, Corporate & International Executive (Edinburgh Chamber ofCommerce) and Mayan Grace, Head of Projects (Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce).
- An overview of the city of Edinburgh, key facts on Scotland, and main ongoing projects in the City by David Cooper, Commercial DevelopmentManager (The City of Edinburgh Council).
- The rest of the day consisted of B2B meetings, with a number of meetings withScottish businesses.
The entire program was delivered virtually via Zoom, so we could experience all the benefits of a Trade Mission despite the current Covid-19 situation.
