25 Years of IOM Presence in Helsinki

In 2017 we celebrated 25 years of IOM presence in Helsinki.

The agreement to open an IOM mission in Finland was signed in Geneva on April 22, 1993 by IOM’s Director General at that time, James N. Purcell and Antti Hynninen, Ambassador at Finland’s permanent mission to the international organizations in Geneva.
