June 08, Colombo: The Ambassador of Finland to Sri Lanka Harri Kämäräinen met with Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe at the Temple Tress on Friday for discussions on the current relations between the two countries.

The Finnish ambassador announced that a delegation from several leading private companies in Finland, such as Nokia and Fortum, will arrive in Sri Lanka on Sunday for a business forum. The delegation is expected to exchange views with Sri Lankan companies.

During the delegation's visit, several Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) to enhance relations between the two countries in the fields of digitalization, health and education will be signed on Tuesday with the participation of the state officials from both countries.

Two more MoUs will be signed by several private companies on energy and education.

Welcoming the cooperation between the two countries, the Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe emphasized the importance of further strengthening the existing bilateral ties with the Nordic countries including Finland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland.

Sri Lankan Prime Minister during his visit to Finland in October last year toured Finnish companies and held discussions with business representatives on bringing Finnish enterprises to Sri Lanka to expand economic cooperation and to make the bilateral relationship between the two countries strong and meaningful.
