The ongoing regional government, health and social services reform brings along changes in the services for SMEs, as the tasks of Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY Centres) and regional councils will be transferred to regions. MDI sparred regional business service experts in Kymenlaakso and South Karelia by arranging intensive workshops during May-June 2018. The workshops focused on building common understanding of future customer needs and preparation of growth service pilots in South-East Finland.
