ASIA-CLEAN expedided cleantech export

The goal of the ASIA-CLEAN project was to increase the export of Finnish and Estonian cleantech, healthtech, smart city, environmental and energy technology companies to the project's target areas in China (Jinan and Shangdong regions and Tianjin) and Malaysia.

Project implementation started almost the same time than all borders were closed due to the COVID19 pandemic. This created challenges to project implementation when travelling to target market was impossible. Project, however, found new ways and solutions to implement the project as well as ways to create and have a frequent contact with the representatives from the target markets. One of the most useful and valuable solution was to have active business experts at local market who were able to act as a node between the target market clients and project partners as well as ASIA-CLEAN project companies. There was a bit over 200 companies who received support and knowledge about entering to Chinese and Malaysian markets through the project activities.

The most valuable and interesting achievements of the ASIA-CLEAN were the realized deals and tailored export benefitting achievements. Altogether 12 deals were obtained. Eight of them focusing on China and four on Malaysia.
