Finland Prime Minister, Sanna Marin, has visited New Zealand for the first time and met our Prime Minster Jacinda Ardern.

The two gave a briefing last week.

At the briefing, Ardern said the talks she had held with Marin affirmed the warm relationship between the two countries which were both committed to democratic values.

Ardern said Finland’s exports to New Zealand were worth $199 million and included technology in companies like Nokia, biofuels, and agricultural machinery. New Zealand was trading about $14m worth of exports, mostly wine and beef.

They also discussed the challenges facing the world, especially Russia’s invasion of Ukraine which they both had strongly condemned.

Marin stressed the need for both countries to work together to advance their shared values.
