Baltics and Nordics getting closer together: how to deepen and expand Latvian and Finnish economic relations

Time             12th June 2019 from 15:00 to 17:00

Place            Embassy of Latvia, Armfeltintie 10, 00150 Helsinki

After a period of somewhat day-to-day interrelation if compared to the “romantic wave” of the beginning of the 90ies, one might argue that the Baltics and Nordics are getting closer again. Finland joins Rail Baltica and a Finn becomes the CEO of RB Rail; Estonia, Finland and Latvia has agreed on a common gas market; the electricity market between the Baltics and Nordics is in place already.

Could these new circumstances give a positive boost to the economic relations between Finland and Latvia? Could the objective of the new Latvian government to continue moving steadily to a higher value added economy and proceed with several hard reforms be a helpful driver? What about the perspective and priorities of the Finnish economy?

We wish you warmly welcome to this event to exchange views on the perspectives of the deepening Latvian and Finnish economic cooperation.

The event is organised by the Embassy of Latvia in cooperation with Investment and Development Agency of Latvia, Finnish-Latvian Business Association, Helsinki Region Chamber of Commerce, Business Finland and Enterprise Europe Network.

Finnish-British Chamber of Commerce: breakfast event Holistic Leadership with Dr Sandhya Karpe! HOLISTIC LEADERSHIP

Warmly welcome to join the breakfast event Holistic Leadership with Dr Sandhya Karpe!

HOLISTIC LEADERSHIP

Life is a many-splendored thing…

 

Research indicates that there is a strong business case for encouraging employees to “bring their whole selves to work”, because of a strong co-relationship between the psychological safety that this creates and employee engagement.

As a leader, how do you define your own success? Have you taken the time to enjoy the richness that life has to offer and encouraged your staff to do the same? You may be surprised at how this approach could deliver higher engagement, productivity and better business results. Join us for a stimulating conversation about Holistic Leadership, presented by Dr Sandhya Karpe.

Le Tour de France eilen ja tänään - Esitelmä Annantalon auditoriossa (Annankatu 30, Helsinki) 16.5.2019 klo 16.30 - vapaa pääsy

tour 1.jpg

Ranskan ympäriajo  Le Tour de France, on maailman tunnetuin vuosittain järjestettävä pyöräilykilpailu. Se ajettiin ensimmäisen kerran vuonna 1903 ja on siitä lähtien järjestetty joka vuosi paitsi maailmansotien aikana 1915–1918 ja 1940–1946.  Kolmiviikkoisen kilpailun reitti vaihtelee, sen pituus on 3000-4000 km.

tour2.jpg

Tommi Wallenius on pyöräilyn harrastaja. Hän on tutkinut maineikkaan tapahtuman historiaa ja nykypäivää. Ympäriajo on herättänyt intohimoja, ja sen historiaan mahtuu sankaruutta ja skandaaleja, hurmosta ja tragediaa. Wallenius kertoo ”Tourin” monipolvisista vaiheista ja sen nykyisistä haasteista
