Foreign Ministry commended for its Team Finland services

Finland’s diplomatic missions abroad and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs in Helsinki were commended by companies for their Team Finland export promotion services. This is revealed in a survey, in which companies assessed the usefulness of Team Finland services and access to and availability of support.

A total of 394 businesses responded to the survey, and the average score of their responses was an excellent 4.3. Answers were given on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the best rating. The result is very good considering that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Team Finland activities were affected by continuously changing circumstances both abroad and in the Ministry.

Respondents were also asked if they had benefited from guidance to services provided by other Team Finland organisations. They were also asked if their business had picked up thanks to this network. The average score to the latter question was 3.9.

The survey is an important tool for the Team Finland network in the development of its export promotion services. It is conducted annually, also this year. 

Team Finland is a network of public sector actors, dedicated to assisting companies in doing business abroad. The Ministry for Foreign Affairs is one of the principal organisations involved in its work.
