Finland promotes wood construction in Germany

Wood is the ecological choice for constructing buildings. Finland could benefit from Russia’s growing wood construction sector as a gateway to the Russian market and a base for European companies.

Gateway to Russia

“Wood construction is on the rise in Russia, which makes it an increasingly interesting market. Finland could be a gateway between Europe and Russia,” says Hanna Lankinen, Senior Director, Invest in Finland.

Finland was well represented at the Holzbau-Forum. In addition to Invest in Finland and Josek, Aalto University organised a group of 20 designers, teachers and officials from Finland to attend the event.
