|Message from Ambassador CHEN Li|
Welcome to the website of the Embassy of the People's Republic of China to the Republic of Finland.
Finland, known as "the land of the thousand lakes", is blessed with abundant forest and freshwater resources. She is the hometown of Santa Claus, the origin of sauna, one of the northernmost countries as well as the nearest European country to China by direct flights.
Since the establishment of the diplomatic relations on October 28th, 1950, Finland and China have always been sincere friends of mutual trust and support as well as reliable partners of equality, mutually beneficial and win-win cooperation, which makes Sino-Finland relations a model of friendship maintained by nations who have different history and culture, social systems and development stages. The two heads of state reached consensus in 2013 that the two countries should work to build a Future-oriented New Type of Partnership. Friendly exchanges between China and Finland have already entered a new stage. Both have maintained frequent high-level exchange of visits, scored fruitful achievements in co-operations in energy conservation, environmental protection, clean tech, scientific and technological innovation as well as enjoyed growing mutual understanding and friendship between the people of two countries.
The Chinese Embassy in Finland will wholeheartedly advance the friendship and co-operation between China and Finland under the guidance of two heads of state's important consensus. This website will introduce China and Sino-Finland relations to you as well as make every effort to provide you with information and services about business, consular affairs, education, tourism etc.. We hope that it will serve as a window on China and the relations between the two countries and also a bridge of strengthening friendship of Chinese and Finnish.
Your comments and suggestions are always welcome and will enable us to improve it further.
