President Sauli Niinistö will host the Kultaranta Talks on June 18–19 at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, said the President Office in a press release on Wednesday.

The talks will exceptionally take place in Helsinki this year as the park and main building of the Presidential Summer Residence Kultaranta in Naantali will be out of use until 2024 due to renovation work.

This year the foreign and security policy event is entitled “Tougher competition, deeper divisions – How will Finland respond to new global challenges?”.

The talks will begin on June 18 with an address by Niinistö and a discussion on the global geopolitical situation, great power competition and Finland’s position.

On June 19, there will be three panel discussions on the following topics: The new era of geopolitics and a dividing world, Finland as a militarily allied country, and global technology competition and security.

About a hundred participants from various sectors of society will be invited to the event.

Participants include policymakers, researchers, representatives of government, business, civil society organisations and the media.
