We are very happy to have been able to engage Hannele as chairman of our exciting business. Plans for the future are for the funds to continue to develop in the same successful way as until now, with the focus on an even more developed practice such as as is based on all the good environmental conditions of the forest, where the energy issue will also become increasingly important. Silvestica has already entered into significant establishment agreements regarding solar and wind power, which may result in large electricity production in the future.
