Lapland Strategy work kick-off

Lapland launched a process to prepare the region’s strategy in a workshop at Rovaniemi on March 2018. The work is naturally based on extensive regional reform materials and on the Lapland Agreement which is the current regional programme. The focus was on the most important focal points, ie. the areas that should be focused on in preparing the strategy. In addition, what kind of strategy is targeted and what are the characteristics and features of a good and successful strategy. Finally, the steps necessary for a successful strategy process were defined more precisely up to the end of 2018 when the new provincial council was scheduled to approve the strategy. Preparation of the strategy is continuing
