Representatives of CzechInvest attended the Alihankinta trade fair in Tampere, Finland, from 27 to 29 September 2016. Alihankina is the biggest supplier trade fair in Finland and is attended by important firms in the areas of mechanical engineering, electronics and electrical engineering, and other sectors. The most recent edition of the event, which has been held annually since 1988, attracted a record number of visitors. One thousand exhibitors from twenty countries presented the latest trends in their respective sectors to eighteen thousand specialists and provided an outstanding overview of Finnish industry.
CzechInvest’s representatives presented the Czech Republic as an ideal location for development of business activities and familiarised those in attendance with the services that the agency offers to investors.
