"I am proud to be a part of an event that showcases the expertise of Finnish companies and opens doors to the growing Chinese market. We will be bringing a diverse group of companies to Shanghai, who will represent Finnish excellence in various fields. A common trait among these companies is the fact that they all represent quality, reliability, safety, ethicality and purity. These qualities are Finland's competitive advantages and I hope that I can do my part in promoting the export of Finnish expertise," says Minister Risikko.

Finnish companies will be showcasing their expertise to Chinese guests at the Team Finland Roadshow invitational event, which will be held in Shanghai on the 23rd of September 2013. The event will be hosted by Paula Risikko, Sc.D., Finland's Minister of Health and Social Services. The event will include companies from the fields of bio and well-being expertise, nanotechnology, food and food safety, energy, and construction, who are looking for Chinese business partners, new business venues, customers and contacts with Chinese officials.

At the Shanghai event, Finnish companies will be showcasing new quick diagnostics possibilities for infectious diseases, expertise in the fields of food safety and nanotechnology, and a host of other high quality products and services. Finnish products and services are risk-free,as the quality of the products guarantees their safety. Quality is grounded in high standards of education, equality, technological know-how, and the desire to do things right - these are all qualities valued by the Chinese as well. The supply chains of Finnish products are traceable from start to finish, and they are pure and ethically produced.

The aim of the Finnish companies taking part in the event is to find new partners for cooperation and business, strengthen important existing contacts and maintain contacts with officials to ensure products can be registered for the Chinese market.

The Team Finland Roadshow is organised by the Finnish Centre of Expertise Programme (OSKE) competence clusters together with operators from the Team Finland network. The Finnish companies will be visiting China from the 23rd to the 27th of September, 2013.
