Team Finland in Namibia

The Team Finland network promotes Finland and its interests abroad: the internationalisation of Finnish enterprises, investments in Finland, and the country brand. The Team Finland operating model brings together the key actors and services in these fields. The core of the network consists of the publicly funded organisations operating in these fields, such as the ministries, Finland’s network of diplomatic missions, Finpro, Tekes, national culture and science institutes, Finnvera, Finnfund, and the regional internationalisation services, built upon the ELY Centres.

The Team Finland network will help your enterprise become more international, grow, and succeed in the global market. For more information on services to companies seeking internationalisation, see:

Objectives of the Team Finland network in Namibia

Namibia has experienced steady economy growth over the past 10-years averaging ca. 4.5 % per annum. The country offers an enabling business environment to international companies with prudent macroeconomic policies, well-maintained government finances, a stable currency pegged to the South African rand and world-class infrastructure.

The mining sector is the foundation of Namibia’s economy and the largest investor after the government. Namibia aims to increase its energy production and offers excellent opportunities in renewable energies. Several companies are also engaged in offshore oil exploration. Namibia thrives to become a gateway to the southern African region, which requires investments to upgrade ports and other infrastructure. Meat, fish, agricultural products and tourism are also important sectors to Namibia’s economy.

Finland and Namibia enjoy excellent relations that date back over 140-years. This offers a unique platform to strengthen economic relations between the two countries. Finland has built close development cooperation links to key sectors such as mining, energy, logistics, marine resources, environment, innovation, ICTs, education and health. Several recent successful business cases in the mining, ship building and environmental technology pave the way for further collaboration.

The Team Finland network in Namibia seeks to build on the close partnership that Finland and Namibia enjoy to increase trade and investment between the two countries. Particular attention is given to SMEs. The network also seeks to promote Namibia as a business destination in Finland.
