Singapore, 25-27 April 2017
Finland’s Minister of Social Affairs and Health, Ms Pirkko Mattila is leading a delegation of eleven innovative Finnish companies to participate in the Ageing Asia Innovation Forum on 24-26 April 2017, at Marina Bay Sands, where Finland will be the focus country.
The participating companies will be presenting their offering at many events organized around this theme during the week. The events are part of the year-long SuomiFinland 100 Singapore program and organized in cooperation between the Embassy of Finland, Finpro and SuomiFinland100 Singapore association.
Echoing the Republic of Finland’s centenary independence celebrations, the theme of the visit is “How to live to 100 with know-how from Finland”.
In addition to Finnish strong participation at the Ageing Asia Innovation Forum, the Ambassador of Finland, H.E. Paula Parviainen, will host a Finland 100 & Ageing Asia Alliance Networking Cocktail on the 25th of April and a seminar on “Creating Solutions for Active Ageing – Together If you rest, you rust! How to live an active life to 100+” will be organized on the 27th April at the Huone Singapore meeting space at Clarke Quay.
Finland would like to build a diverse and strong cooperation with public and private hospitals, clinics and service providers in Singapore, and also to find distribution channels for new innovations and advanced care solutions. The services of the Finnish companies range from safety solutions for smart homes to video-based home health care for assisted living, early diagnosis of disease and rehabilitation.
Ageing Asia is an annual business of ageing platform to access investment and partnership opportunities in Asia Pacific. The 2017 theme of ‘Future of Integrated Care: Housing, Health & Communities’ was chosen to reflect the changing needs of ageing baby boomers who desire to age- in-place, with relevant housing, health and communities services that can evolve to suit their changing requirements as they age.
