Finnish Ambassador, His Excellency Ambassador Jukka Pietikainen presented credentials to Governor General Sir Frederick Ballantyne on Monday 20th March 2017.


Finland and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines established relations on 11th September 2007 and have since enjoyed a fruitful partnership.  Finland financed the restoration of Fort Duvernette in 2010, a project developed by the National Trust. The project included the rebuilding of the jetty, installation of protective netting, installation of a garbage receptacle and repairs to the steps leading to the Fort.


The Ambassador is also accredited to CARICOM and the Association of Caribbean States (ACS), with Finland supporting meteorological work in the region. Most recently, the country has also expressed a strong interest in exploring the bio-energy potential in mainland territories of CARICOM.
