Finnish Water Forum, Vesiotec Ltd. and Advion Group Ltd have signed an agreement for international cooperation in strategic development of water management. The aim of this cooperation agreement between the parties is to enter new, emerging markets where the availability of clean water is a challenge.
Today, more than 1.6 billion people have problems with the availability of clean water, even though the water reserves should be adequate to all the people in the world. However, the UN estimates that by 2025, up to two-thirds of the world’s population will suffer from water scarcity.
The growing need for clean water coupled with the megatrends of urbanization, global growth of the industry and the ever-increasing environmental awareness which entail tighter environmental standards, offer Finnish companies in water segment huge international business opportunities.
In addition to technology expertise, a significant number of international business experts can also be found in Finland and their expertise is crucial in the entry process to the global market. The available business opportunities require unprecedented utilization of both complementary technologies and available business know-how.
“We look forward to new significant customer relationships to our services,” says Vesiotec’s Board member Jani Härkki. “This great branded service is ideally suited to our international projects. We are able to bring it up in many of our programs, “continues Ari Virtanen, CEO of Advion Group with enthusiasm.
