MDI helped government to design regional development programme for Eastern and Northern Finland

MDI played a central role in designing strategic guidelines for regional development of Eastern and Northern Finland, announced by the Finnish Government in June. Regional Development Programme for Eastern and Northern Finland is the most important regional development initiative of this governmental period. MDI supported the preparation of the programme document and background memo, and organised a workshop for a group of experts to gather ideas for the programme. Further development of the ideas takes place in the Ministry of Employment and the Economy.
