Who we are?

Finnish Business Council Shanghai (FBCS) is the business networking, facilitation, and information platform for Finnish or Finland-related businesses operating in the Greater Shanghai area. We are a non-profit, non-governmental organization having 150+ Finnish or Finland-related companies and individuals as our members. FBCS’s mission is to promote its member companies’ business interests in China.

FBCS was founded already in 1994. We have grown at a steady pace over the years and currently, are one of the largest business council communities outside Finland. We welcome all Finnish companies, or companies with close ties to Finland, to join our community.

We are dedicated to provide our members with value-adding assistance and strive to actively develop our services and deliver valuable benefits to our members. 

We believe in the importance of bringing people together and want to offer an active business networking platform to our members. It is our aim to connect the members with the right people and resources and thus, help them to create a business environment where they can prosper.

We also welcome younger business-oriented people to join our community through Finnish Young Professionals Shanghai. The FYP board and network leaders construct ways to benefit their members through FYP events and miscellaneous opportunities. FYP is part of FBCS, so membership in FYP allows members to participate in FBCS events as well.

FBCS offers a direct connection to Team Finland actors. We work in close cooperation especially with the Consulate General of Finland and Business Finland and therefore, can provide our member companies with value-adding assistance with regards to a wide variety of business-related issues.

FBCS is well connected also towards the larger international business community operating in Shanghai and we are an active player in the InterChamber community. We work especially close with other Nordic Chambers.
