The region of Lahti in Finland and a Japanese waste management company are joining forces to develop their collaboration in the fields of education, technology and planning.

The agreement also aims to take their shared expertise in cleantech to other countries in East and Southeast Asia.

The Japanese company, Ishizaka, is also keen to learn more about the Lahti region’s knowledge in waste management, which, according to head of development at Lahti Region Development Ladec Isto Vanhamäki, opens up opportunities for local entrepreneurs and education institutions.

There will be two delegations from Japan visiting Lahti this year, the first one coming in May and the second in August.
