New Delhi — Nokia Senior Vice President and Head of India Market, Sanjay Malik, has been appointed as the new chairperson of FINCHAM (Finland Chamber of Commerce in India) for the year 2023-24. Malik takes over the position from Fortum India President Sanjay Aggarwal, the previous year’s chairperson.
Established in 2018, FINCHAM has played a vital role in strengthening business ties and commerce between India and Finland. The trade between the two countries reached a historic milestone in 2022, surpassing one billion dollars.
In his acceptance letter addressed to members of the chamber, Sanjay Malik said, “I feel fortunate to be taking over the mantle of FINCHAM at such an opportune time. India’s ambitious growth agenda under a dynamic leadership affords a wide avenue for Finnish companies to use their technologically advanced products and solutions to accelerate economic development in the country. Finland will emerge as a strong, reliable partner country as India seeks to leapfrog several generations of standards and leverage the potential of Industry 4.0.”
Malik thanked the Finnish Ambassador H.E. Ritva Koukku-Ronde and Dr Jukka Holappa, Country Manager, Business Finland, for their support to FINCHAM. He outlined four priority areas of sustainability, ease of doing business, market navigation, and B2B networking as the guiding agenda for detailed action planning.
