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.
