Ambassador Päivi Luostarinen is in charge of the Embassy. The Political and Economic Section traditionally forms the core of the Embassy's work. This involves negotiating, analysing and reporting on political and economic developments in Britain, building up a network of contacts and taking care of the practical arrangements for state and ministerial visits.
The Consular Section protects the interests of Finnish nationals in the United Kingdom. Its services include providing passports and notary services, visas for foreigners travelling to Finland, and assistance to Finnish citizens in distress. In addition to the Embassy of Finland in London, Finland has Honorary Consuls based in about 20 other cities in the United Kingdom.
The Public Diplomacy team promotes the image of Finland in the United Kingdom, briefs journalists based in the UK, organises media visits to Finland, arranges media coverage for official visits, and monitors UK media coverage of Finland as well as international politics. The Cultural Section, which is part of the public diplomacy team, serves Finnish interests in the UK by organising various cultural exchanges and events in co-operation with British institutions, museums and private galleries.
