"As a business proudly founded in Finland, it's our privilege to welcome Prime Minister Sanna Marin and the whole Finnish delegation to Sydney. We're proud to showcase KONE's innovativeness and important milestones with new technologies, digital transformation, and green transition," says Jerome Audais, managing director for KONE Australia and New Zealand.

The visit included a demonstration of KONE's ecosystem partnerships, such as Application Programming Interface (API) connected robots that can remotely call elevators and move independently between floors and offices.

This marks the first time that a prime minister of Finland visits Australia or New Zealand, with the tour including meetings with Anthony Albanese, Prime Minister of Australia and Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister of New Zealand. The prime ministers focused in their discussions on the opportunities offered by new technologies and digital transformation, along with energy supply and the green transition, response to climate change and biodiversity loss, and equality and human rights.
