Finland’s new Ambassador to Saint Lucia has indicated his country’s interest in strengthening cooperation in the area of renewable energy:
Saint Lucia first established diplomatic relations with Finland in 2009 leading the way for its sister territories in the OECS, who subsequently embraced Finland at the diplomatic level in 2010. According to the Finish Diplomat, Finland became a non-hemispheric donor to the Caribbean Development Fund about nine years ago, as part of its dialogue with the Caribbean in the fields of renewable energy, ocean governance, environmental protection, meteorology and education.
“We look forward to continuing cooperation in the energy sector especially in the field of renewable energy,” Ambassador Pietikainen said. “We have world class technology for example in the field of wind energy and bio energy. Finland is one of the global leaders in waste to energy solutions and bio fuel technologies.”
