BACKGROUND:

On 5th April 2017, President Xi Jinping and President Sauli Niinistö signed a Joint Declaration between the Republic of Finland and the People’s Republic of China on Establishing and Promoting the future-oriented new-type cooperative partnership.

On 29th August 2017, in order to put the Joint Declaration into practice at the local government level, Beijing Municipality and City of Helsinki signed a three-year action plan with five priority areas of cooperation.

On 10th October 2017, to seek new areas of partnership in the spirit of the Action Plan and inspired by the “Moi Helsinki” event in Beijing in May 2016, the Beijing Bureau of Culture sent the City of Helsinki a draft program for 2018 Finnish “Happy Chinese New Year in Helsinki– Beijing Week” series activity.

The program highlighted four events in addition to the main cultural event. The four events related to (i) Science and Technology Exposition, (ii) Economic and Trade Consultation, (iii) Sports Exchange Activities and (iv) Beijing Tourism Picture Exposition.
