Finnish Business Council Singapore: Nordic Ambassadors' Luncheon

Dear Members and Friends,

Wrapping up a year of fruitful collaborations, the Nordic Chambers and Business Associations are delighted to invite you to the Nordic Ambassadors' Luncheon with Singapore’s NEA Director as the guest of honour. 

The theme for the event on December 10, is Sustainable Development – for which joint efforts, innovation and exchange are crucial.

The Nordic countries have all committed to the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the 2030 Agenda and are pursuing the goals at an international level as well as working towards building sustainable societies at home. Singapore is equally very ambitious, being both a Green and a Smart Nation. 
 
The luncheon will showcase that Singapore and the Nordics share both similarities and common interests.

After a three-course sustainable lunch is served, the four Nordic corporations will share successful sustainable business cases that put the SDG’s into practice.

We look forward to seeing you there!
