Tekes and Finpro, the Finnish trade promotion organisation, will be merged into a new organisation with the working title Business Finland.
Business Finland will gather all services related to innovation funding and to the promotion of exports, investments and travel under one roof. About 600 experts will be transferred to the new organisation.
Abroad, cooperation with the Ministry for Foreign Affairs will be intensified. Together with the diplomatic missions, Business Finland will form a stronger Team Finland network globally.
Finpro’s and Tekes tasks will not change in the restructuring, but the way of organising and producing services will become more streamlined.
