Finland, which partnered with Karnataka last year to exchange information and expertise in the fields of science, research, innovation and skill development, has now proposed to extend the trade agreement to other sectors including industries, education and energy.

Nina Vaskunlahti, ambassador of Finland to India who called on Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy here on Thursday, is said to have held a detailed discussion regarding the MoU signed between the two parties last September.

According to a statement released by the chief minister’s office (CMO), Vaskunlahti, impressed by the progress made, had proposed to broaden the scope of the agreement.

The ambassador, who spoke about the 5G development centres set up by Finnish company Nokia in Bengaluru, also discussed the support to tech startups that the company was providing.

She said the Minister for Trade and International Co-operation of Finland would visit the Bengaluru Tech Summit in November. The CMO said Kumaraswamy promised the government’s support to the collaboration.
