Facilitation of Ministerial Events

The availability of labor is already the most significant obstacle to the growth of companies. In the fall of 2021, Labor Minister Tuula Haatainen launched the Työvoimatiekartta (Labor Road map) -project in order to ensure the availability of labor in all industries throughout Finland. In the road map work led by experts from the Ministry of Labor and the Economy, representatives of eight different industries have considered in their own industry groups how the availability of skilled workers can be improved.

MDI facilitated the regional conference organized by Minister Haatainen in Seinäjoki on February 16, 2023 and in Vaasa on March 14, 2023. The events included speeches from national actors from the Continuing Learning and Employment Service Center and the Ministry, as well as the region’s own speeches from companies, cities and actors in the education sector.
