Team Finland China is organizing a business delegation visit to Hubei Province on May 27-28, 2021. The visit is led by Mr. Jarno Syrjälä, Ambassador of Finland to China. Hubei province offers many potential business opportunities for Finnish companies ranging from energy and bio economy to healthcare and winter sports.
There are good opportunities for Finnish energy companies in the fields of waste to power, smart energy solutions and power flexibility, to mention a few.
Hubei is a key manufacturing base for pulp and paper in China, housing many leading paper mills. There are potential business opportunities for Finnish companies, not only in pulp and paper, but in paper mill related technologies or solutions, such as energy efficiency (CHP), waste water treatment and automation.
Recently the Winter Sport Administration Center of the General Administration of Sport of China (GAS) reached a strategic cooperation agreement with the Hubei provincial government on making Hubei the national model province for winter sports development in southern China and over 200 projects with a total investment of RMB 120 billion (~ EUR 15 billion) related to sports will be implemented in Hubei.
Regarding healthcare, the "Hubei model" is introduced as the reform of disease prevention and control system and the construction of public health system. A concept called "Big Health" is highlighted as the key development sector including pharmaceutical research, high-end medical equipment development, emerging medical services, health care industry development, health food, fitness and sports.
