The primary mission of the Finnish Business Council in Singapore is to provide its members with quality assured information and a forum to network with other like-minded individuals in order to share experiences. In order to fulfil this mission, the FBC arranges regular events, publishes weekly news flash, organizes social events, provide mentoring and connects you with other Finnish or Nordic organizations. FBC also has close ties with other Nordic business associations and organizes in collaboration joint events with them.
