Finnish Minister of Education addressing a group of Finnish education companies who had traveled with her to Hong Kong, along with many invited Hong Kong guests from the education sector. The goal of the visit was to raise awareness of the Finnish companies to the Hong Kong based entities, to see if there is interest in developing commercial relationships. This is the core service Polkuni provides to all its Finnish based clients.
Yours truly had the role of moderating the event, which I also at Chair of the FinnCham HK education committee had organised along with the Finncham team and excellent support from Victor Cheng of HK EdCity and his team. The feedback we had was the event and the two day trip was very positive for the Finnish companies, but the key measure of the success is if and when real business happens.
It was interesting to meet the Minister along with Victor Cheng and to hear some of her thoughts about the role and future of Finnish education, so check out our blog to learn more in the future.
