About The Event

Serbia, North Macedonia and Montenegro offer numerous business opportunities for Finnish companies. These countries represent a market of around 10 million people. All (non-EU) Balkan countries have a free trade agreement with the European Union, which makes the level of economic integration with the EU already very high and which creates pre-conditions for successful trade with Finnish companies.

Leaving the turbulent past behind, the Balkan countries have gone through a tremendous economic transformation, demonstrating great potential and opportunities for growth. In 2017, the GDP growth rates exceeded EU average, and they are expected to increase in the following years, driven by private consumption and increasing investment and exports.
