FACC Florida Newsletter

NEWSLETTER | August 2018






We are getting lots of good news from Finland, where summer has been unusually hot and sunny so far. Big Finnish companies have won orders around the world. Finnish-based company Ahlstrom-Munksjö is strenghtening its presence in USA by acquiring US-based Expera. The largest deal was made by Finnish telecommunications company Nokia, which signed an agreement worth 3,5 billion dollars with US-based company T-Mobile.

The biggest news in July was Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin’s summit in Helsinki on July 16th. Finland did an excellent job by organizing the summit within a very short notice and Finnish President Sauli Niinistö also had the opportunity to meet with both presidents and strengthen Finland's already good relations with the USA and Russia.

Have a great August everyone!

Yours truly,

Esa Jokela

FACC President
