E-mobility is on the verge of major expansion in Europe. Connected systems, renewable energy sources, storage and management as well as measuring are essential parts of its development, challenging both the public and private sectors.

Finland and Switzerland rank amongst the leading countries in e-mobility and face similar challenges. What is currently going on?

The Chamber of Commerce Finland-Switzerland, Greater Geneva Bern Area and the Finland Chamber of Commerce together with the Helsinki Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise Europe Network and Business Finland invite you to share and gather insights to the challenges and possibilities of cross-border business in e-mobility & energy knowhow, and to network.

Jeudi 27 septembre 2018

Nous avons le grand plaisir de vous annoncer que nous organisons un déjeuner avec Monsieur Marcus Rantala le jeudi 27 septembre à 12h30 au Cercle Suédois.

Notre invité nous parlera de l'avenir de la Finlande et des développements attendus à Helsinki, de sa vision sur l'Europe et la France.

Le débat sera modéré par Monsieur Jean-Pierre Beaudoin

Marcus Rantala  est un politicien finlandais qui fait partie du Conseil municipal de Helsinki où il  représente le Parti du peuple suédois. Sa carrière lui a permis d'acquérir une large perspective sur la vie politique finlandaise : depuis 2001 il a été successivement Conseiller politique pour le gouvernement finlandais, Secrétaire d'État au Ministère de l'Education et de la Culture ainsi qu'au Ministère de la Défense.

Il est actuellement associé chez Rud Pedersen Public Affairs Company. Dans l’attente de vous retrouver à cette occasion, nous vous souhaitons un très bel été, avec, bien sûr, des vacances bien méritées !

Elections in Brazil: Life After Impeachment?

 

How are the markets faring and what lies ahead for Latin America’s giant as a place to do business?

Welcome to a breakfast briefing on Brazil’s first presidential election since the impeachment of Dilma Rousseff in 2016. Lauri Tähtinen, a country specialist and Nordic West Office’s Head of Research and Analysis, explores Brazil’s politics, economy and place in the world.

Join us to learn more about the cast of characters leading in the polls:

·        The wildly popular ex-president, Lula, who remains imprisoned and thus excluded from running for office.

·        The foul-mouthed congressman, Jaír Bolsonaro, who boosts the military dictatorship and boasts about not understanding the economy.

·        The environmental activist Marina Silva, an Evangelical Christian, whose electoral platform combines social conservatism with an anti-corruption agenda.

Will a mainstream presidential candidate surge, and what is the outlook for congressional and state elections? Can Brazil recover from a historic corruption scandal and economic downturn? How does democracy fare after impeachment? The Brazilian experience holds lessons beyond its borders on what may follow the ousting of an elected head of state.

Join us for breakfast, immerse yourself in all things Brazilian and be prepared to ask some hard questions.

·        When: Wednesday, September 19, 8.30-10 am (breakfast served from 8 am)

·        Where: Nordic West Office, Vuorikatu 15 A, 00100 Helsinki

·        Registration: (with dietary restrictions) by Thursday Sep 13 by email: events@nordicwestoffice.com

This breakfast session is organized by Nordic West Office in co-operation with Finnish-Latin-American Trade Association, Helsinki Region Chamber of Commerce and Enterprise Europe Network.

The event is free of charge. Welcome!

Nordic West Office provides analysis on elections that have an impact on Nordic Business. Other sessions this autumn are:

·        Tuesday, September 4 at 8.30-10 am: Elections in Sweden. All forecasts point to chaos.

·        Friday, November 9 at 8.30-10 am: Elections in the US. Referendum on Trump.

For registrations please send an email to events@nordicwestoffice.com.
