An Update on U.S.-Finland Relations

On November 2, 2017 the World Affairs Council, in partnership with the Rainier Club, welcomed Kirsti Kauppi, the Finnish ambassador to the United States, for a dinner conversation about Finland’s concerns and priorities and the changing nature of the security environment. In the discussion, Ambassador Kirsti addressed Finland’s relationship with Russia, it’s role in the European Union, and it’s perspective as the top ranking country on measures of gender equality. The conversation also turned to the importance of climate change, the U.S.-Finland relationship, and marking 100 years of Finnish independence.
