A message of greeting from Mrs. Halonen

A MESSAGE OF GREETING FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF FINLAND TARJA HALONEN

Amateur Radio has a long and rich history in Finland. Wireless telecommunications also play a strong part in the infrastructure of modern Finland. Therefore, the Ministry of Education has supported the aspirations of the Finnish youth in this field for many years now.

It is indeed a great pleasure to see so many highly skilled people from all over the world taking part in the World Radiosport Team Championships 2002 here in Finland. I extend my best greetings and wishes for success to the WRTC2002, to all participants and spectators as well as to the organisers of the Championships.

Tarja Halonen
President of the Republic
Patron of WRTC2002
