Team Finland promotional event with Fiskars

The Embassy of Finland in cooperation with local distributor Komtel, held an event to promote Fiskars, the Finnish leading global supplier of consumer products for the home, garden, and outdoors.

The November evening was warm enough for the event to be held partly outside in the garden of the Ambassador’s residence in Pristina. Despite the already quite dark autumn evening, guests could see closely the excellent quality and functional design of the Fiskars axes, shovels, lawn mowers and other gardening tools on show. There was also a small demonstration of some of the products being used.
