26 - 28 APRIL
Stronger partnerships and increased market access between Zambia and Finland. The annual Finnish Week of Business in Zambia offers B2B matchmaking and thematic sessions in key business sectors – all online this year. Welcome!
The Finnish Week of Business, or FinnBiz Week, is the largest annual event organised by the Embassy of Finland in Lusaka. Its main objective is to encourage business between Finnish and Zambian companies and entities, improve the countries’ perceptions of each other as trading partners, and to market available opportunities for trade.
FinnBiz Week has been organised three times. The first edition was launched in 2019 in Lusaka during the Zambia Agritech Expo, and the second edition was hosted virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the spring of 2020. The third annual FinnBiz Week takes place from 26 to 28 April 2021.
Last year, the virtual Finnish Week of Business connected over 20 Finnish companies with around 60 pre-identified potential Zambian partners in a series of B2B and thematic meetings.
Concrete results from these events since 2019 include direct sales, new partnerships being established, and an increased local presence, including manufacturing and subsidiary registrations.

Welcome to the webpages of the Finnish Week of Business – an annual event that has already become a tradition!
We are keen to have you join our common efforts to ensure that business between Finland and Zambia goes on and indeed grows. With the strong history of bilateral relations between our two countries, and with the many potential complementarities and win-win opportunities in agriculture, forestry, mining, digital solutions, renewable energy, circular economy, and education, I believe that together we can go very far.
