Team Finland in Indonesia

With a global goal of making Finland a forerunner in a changing global environment, Team Finland is actively contributing to the local business scene through forums and facilitations.

Team Finland personifies cooperation and more efficient use of resources for the benefit of Finland and Finnish companies in Indonesia. Leading the entity’s endeavours in Indonesia is H.E. Jari Sinkari, Finnish Ambassador to Indonesia, acting as Chair of Team Finland in Indonesia. Founded on the principles of positive cooperation and communication, work within Team Finland is carried out in close cooperation with many actors in the spheres of business and industry, culture and education, based on a proactive network that operates with agility and quality.

As the biggest economy in the ASEAN countries, Indonesia is considered to have lucrative opportunities for Finnish companies to thrive as they conduct business and contribute further to the nation’s economy. The goal of Team Finland is to support Finnish companies’ access to the vast market in Indonesia, where there is a strong demand in areas that have traditionally been Finland’s strongest internationally.

Several prominent areas of cooperation and business include the health sector, education, energy, mining and metal processing, circular economy, infrastructure development, digitalisation and smart solutions to support urban development, as well as sustainable natural resource management, including forestry.

Team Finland also facilitates cooperation agreements with Indonesian state actors to improve access of Finnish companies to public sector projects. In addition, Team Finland in Indonesia aims to nurture cooperation between Finnish companies in the Indonesian market by providing a platform for developing cooperation and interaction between Finnish business and Indonesian actors.

In addition to the obvious benefits, partnering companies may also take advantage of Finnish missions’ and Honorary Consuls’ networks of contacts with local authorities, companies and partners. This network can serve as the local eyes and ears for a company heading for a new market.

Team Finland also offers potential credibility to partner companies through organisation of networking events. The head of a mission or a high official may be involved to lend prestige to events in different ways, for instance by opening it or giving an address.
