Planning of the regional development programme for Eastern and Northern Finland

MDI played a central role in designing strategic guidelines for regional development in Eastern and Northern Finland, announced by the Finnish Government in June 2012. The Regional Development Programme for Eastern and Northern Finland was 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 took place in the Ministry of Employment and the Economy.
