Alex Stubb, the minister of foreign trade of Finland, said that the trade relationship between Finland and China will improve.
"We've got a great amount of Finland companies that launched their branches in China and more business partnerships between companies within the two countries will be set up," Stubb said at the Nordic Center located at Fudan University in Shanghai on April 10.
Stubb added that Finland is looking forward to welcoming more Chinese investors to put money in potential projects in Finland, especially in the field of clean technology and high-tech products.
In regards to renewable energy, which Finland uses for 28 percent of its energy, Stubb suggested China aim to replace traditional energy with renewable energy.
"Finland aims to raise the portion to 38 percent by 2020, while a similar target could also be detailed in the short-term government plan in China with a specific percentage," said Stubb.
