On 28th August, B3CF organised the annual Garden Party at the British Ambassador’s Residence, by kind permission of HMA Tom Dodd.
This year marked the 70th Anniversary of The Commonwealth, 1949-2019, and 100 years of Finnish-British Diplomatic relations. British and Commonwealth Chamber of Commerce in Finland – B3CF was delighted that the 150 year-old Royal Commonwealth Society, through it’s Nordic-Baltic Hub, partnered with them to bring you multiple colours and flavours of The Commonwealth 53.
The Garden Party is the traditional, highlight event of the year, where B3CF, and now The RCS, welcomes members and invited guests back from their holidays to kick start another season.
Like all our events, the event brought B3CF members, Ambassadors, stakeholders and partners together to celebrate and strengthen the relationships within our associations, in the relaxed setting of a great garden. Each year the garden party is attended by leading business persons, civil servants, diplomats and politicians, all connected to The Commonwealth and Nordic-Baltic family and communities.
The Executive Director of Nordic-Africa was delighted to have been honoured with an invitation.
