Building a Nordic Digital Trade Region
Tuesday 4.4.2023 at 10.00 – 11.00
Ministry for Foreign Affairs
Virtual Finland will host a panel discussion about the benefits of the NSG&B program and the goals of the Nordic digital trade region. Opening remarks will be given by Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Ville Skinnari.
The goal of the Nordic Smart Government & Business program (NSG&B) is to strengthen the digital integration of the Nordic region as well as to create new business opportunities by making real-time company data available to businesses. NSG&B, the Real Time Economy program, and Virtual Finland have collaborated on a pilot project that aims to make it possible to set up a company digitally in another Nordic country. The technical testing for the project was done together with the trade registers and tax authorities from Finland, Sweden, and Norway.
We would like to welcome you to a panel discussion about the benefits of the NSG&B program and the goals of the Nordic digital trade region as a whole. Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Ville Skinnari will give the opening remarks. The panel of experts includes Jan Otto Johansen (Brønnøysundregistrene, Norway), Mats Agervi (Combient), Jan Fredrik Håvie (Skatteetaten, Norway), Ull Torbjörn (Bolagsverket, Sweden), and Minna Rintala (Finnish Patent and Registration Office). The event will be in English.
