Nordic branding and export cooperation in China
Nordic Innovation is actively working with branding and export of Nordic sustainable urban development solutions through the Nordic Sustainable Cities initiative, which is one of the flagship projects under the Nordic prime ministers’ initiative Nordic Solutions to Global Challenges.
Under the Nordic City Solutions platform, Nordic Innovation is working together with the Nordic trade promotion agencies to build relations with Chinese stakeholders.
“Although we have not been directly involved with the Changshu innovation park and cooperation plan, we are very pleased to see that the branding and export efforts we are involved in in China are yielding results and that the Nordics are seen as attractive partners. The innovation park can hopefully help Nordic businesses establish themselves in the Chinese market and contribute to create even more sustainable, liveable and smart cities for Chinese citizens”, says Senior Innovation Adviser Rasmus Malmborg from Nordic Innovation.
