Finland – Saudi Arabia 50th Anniversary

2019 marks the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relationship and cooperation between Finland and Saudi Arabia.

To celebrate this milestone and Saudi Arabia’s upcoming 89th National Day, the Saudi Arabian embassy in Helsinki arranged a reception at Finlandia Hall on Tuesday, September 17. Over 200 invitees attended the event and enjoyed Saudi hospitality.

With a presence in Saudi Arabia since 1998, NXme has been building a bridge between the countries already for over 21 years, with one of the longest continuous commercial operations in the country among Finnish businesses. To share our experiences and views, NXme was invited to address a speech and to have a booth at the event.

The founder of NXme and our Chairman of the Board, Mr. Oiva Karppinen, gave a presentation of our journey, from building the public internet in Saudi Arabia 21 years ago in 1998, to the present days, where we are enabling and securing some of the vital parts of Saudi Arabian Vision 2030 as a close partner for both governmental and private organizations.
