Vaasa and Mustasaari are currently carrying out a joint municipal structure survey (more information in Swedish https://fusionskollen.fi/). The Management Group has commissioned regional development and vitality analysis from MDI. The survey will include a comparative statistical and strategic Nordic analysis. The analysis emphasizes the future orientation and looks at the strategic significance of a potential joint venture from a broad regional perspective. The results of the work will be reviewed in a seminar on September 25.
