Ambassador for Health and Wellbeing Päivi Sillanaukee to Berlin

Päivi Sillanaukee, Ambassador for Health and Wellbeing at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland, will attend the DMEA exhibition in Berlin together with a Team Finland business delegation on 26–27 April 2022.

DMEA(layout.types.url.description) is one of Europe’s most important events focusing on the digitisation of healthcare. Business Finland has gathered a business delegation of 14 Finnish companies providing digital health sector solutions. Sillanaukee will also meet State Secretary Thomas Steffen from the Federal Ministry of Health and other respected health sector actors in Berlin.

“The ambitious plans of Germany’s new government to digitalise the healthcare system offer many opportunities for Finnish companies. As one of the leading countries in digitalisation, Finland is a natural partner in implementing this digital transformation,” says Ambassador Sillanaukee.
