Consul General Pasi Hellman pointed out in his opening remarks that international cooperation is needed to achieve the necessary results. No country can solve global challenges alone. For example, many interesting Nordic solutions can be scaled up and replicated in the Yangtze River Delta Region, such as solutions in green buildings, waste treatment, renewable energy, and many more.
