Switzerland and Finland have deep and longstanding ties. Many shared values are at the core of our strong relations and enduring friendship. We work together to promote human rights and gender equality, protect the environment and share a commitment to multilateralism, a rules-based global order and a progressive trade agenda.
My colleagues and I look very much forward to working with you, and to introducing all that Switzerland has to offer as a destination for education and travel, as well as a place to invest and do business with.
