Finland and Chile have agreed to boost up bilateral cooperation particularly in the sector of small and medium sized enterprises, said a government press release on Tuesday.
 
Representatives of the two countries, while attending the first meeting of the Bilateral Steering Committee in Helsinki on August 19, talked about the ways for strengthening bilateral cooperation.
 
The meeting received the welcoming words from Finnish Employment and Economy ministry’s secretary Marja Rislakki and Chilean vice minister for mining, Francisco Orrego.
 
The Bilateral Steering Committee is lead by Kari Knuutila of Finland and Francisco Orrego of Chile, and coordinated by the ambassadors of both the countries, Ilkka Heiskanen from Finland and Eduardo Tapia from Chile.
 
Incorporation of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in cooperation was seen as one of the key issues for both the countries.
 
During the official visit of the Finnish Prime Minister Jyrki Katainen to Chile in January 2013, the two countries had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for bilateral cooperation.
 
It was decided to develop the MoU objectives in four subgroups – Public Governance, Education, Research and Innovation, and Industry.
 
The next Steering Committee meeting would be held in Santiago, Chile, in June 2014, in order to monitor the WP progress.
 
Later on Tuesday, Chilean minister Orrego met Economic Affairs Minister Jan Vapaavuori.
 
Vapaavuori expressed his interest to visit Chile with a Finnish business delegation when the Steering Committee will meet in order to boost the cooperation and synergies by combining the activities in 2014.
