MDI’s own municipal survey 2020: Ostrobothnia is number one in terms of vitality while faith in the future can be found all across Finland

In October-November, we conducted a nationwide municipal survey for the sixth time. With the survey, we gathered the views of municipal decision-makers and senior officials on their municipality’s future.
