Communication is the key word for the goals of our office this year. Our memberships are growing on a steady pace and we are happy to have almost all larger Finnish companies operating in Thailand as our members. The digital Vision Finland 2019 magazine is a good example of the kind of TFCC communication that reaches companies in Finland directly. After all not many Finnish companies know what type of Finnish companies operate in Thailand and what is it like to do business here. Thailand is known for the main part only as a holiday destination. Increased communication means providing steady information through our social media channels and working together with Team Finland delivering information to Finland.
We also hope that you would take more advantage of our Mentoring service as our professionals are ready to sit down with you and discuss your challenges at your convenience.
Having worked now for almost 5 years for TFCC I am planning to move back to Finland this spring. I have my family there and I want to spend more time with them. Also for me the Finnish health care is important. I wish to have a chance to work with Finnish innovations and if possible open doors to them to Thailand and to Southeast Asia. After all I have been doing just that for the last 5 years.
