Finland is the smart choice at Expo Real 2013

The Helsinki-Finland stand at Expo Real 2013 is promoting business opportunities in Finland.

Smart cities

Green building also offers many opportunities in Finland thanks to public building regulations and targets which need to be met in the near future.

“We need new innovations in construction and for developing urban and residential areas,” says Senior Director Sari Toivonen from Invest in Finland. “Just now, one our clients from Germany was very interested in contacting Finnish players in the sector because they have a new concept for developing smart cities, including car sharing. The trend is towards more communal participation in urban areas. We don’t have to own everything by ourselves.”
