A partnership with academia

Building knowledge for trade and development


Long-time Vi supporter, the Governement of Finland, has again this year allocated funds to help provide capacity-building services to members from Least Developed Countries.

Even as the financial crisis has shrunk many countries' development funding budgets, Finland has generously increased their annual contribution to the Vi, and has expanded the coverage of activities to include middle-income countries in Sub-Sharan Africa. This is great news for our current members in Kenya and Mauritius.

We would like to express our deepest appreciation to the Government of Finland
