The Ambassador of Finland Kirsti Kauppi came to visit Lake Worth and Palm Beach area on February 21st. During her quick two day visit, she was invited to speak in three different events and visited the Finnish American Village to meet and greet the senior residents.
On Wednesday 21st she attended a luncheon where she was invited by Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line. She spoke about Finland, relations between USA and Finland and also answered many questions after her speech. She stated that since Finland is a small country, country needs to invest in its people. Thanks to this great mission, we have special Finnish expertise also here in South Florida. It is great to hear more and more news about Finnish companies and talented Finnish people who are on their way to success internationally.
Ambassador Kauppi was also speaking at the Finland House on Wednesday and was a keynote speaker at Finlandia Foundation Florida Chapter Special Annual Meeting on Thursday. It was a great honor to have Ambassador Kauppi here and we look forward to her next visit.
