Letter from the Chairman

Despite the Covid-19 restrictions, the Chamber has remained active in assisting and supporting its members. Understandably there have been few live events, with the focus instead on the use of online tools and webinars for communication. These webinars have covered topical subjects such as New HR Legislations, Employee Wellbeing, Cyber Security, Advice for Start-ups, and Economic Updates to name a few. Overall, the participation in these webinars has been very active and within the FBCC social media channels, the following has seen a significant increase. The Chamber’s network today extends to more than 1300 business contacts with a very stable membership base.
The cooperation with the Chamber’s Partners, including the Finnish Embassy has remained strong. As a member of Team Finland, the Chamber has been provided with an excellent platform to contribute towards the common Finnish-British good. In addition, the cooperation with the other Nordic Chambers of Commerce has worked very well and will continue in the future. The Chamber’s financial basis remains solid and working with a capable team headed by General Manager Jade Juvonen, supported by an active Board, we are in good shape to enter 2022.
The United Kingdom, particularly London,  continues to be one of the world’s fastest growing ICT/Digitalisation hubs which offers great opportunities for Finnish companies operating in this sector. Finland is also well known for its skills and expertise in areas including Green Energy, Wellbeing, Sustainability, Digitalisation and Education which all are included in one way or another in the UK Government’s sizeable Covid-recovery funding plans.

When all of this is combined with the knowledge that many commercial relationships between Finnish and British entities have lasted for centuries, I believe that we have all the reasons to think optimistically about the future.

I look forward to seeing you at FBCC’s events.
Chairman
Juha-Matti Lampola
