Minister of Employment Satonen to visit Sweden – Discussions to focus on labour market reforms
Minister of Employment Arto Satonen will visit Stockholm on 28–29 August 2023. Satonen will meet the Swedish Minister for Employment and Integration Johan Pehrson, among others. The ministers will discuss labour market reforms and the factors that help attract and retain international experts.
During his visit, Minister Satonen will also meet Irene Wennemo, Director General of the Swedish National Mediation Office. The agenda also includes discussions with representatives of the Swedish Trade Union Confederation, the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise, and the Swedish Association of Industrial Employers.
“The Government aims to improve the Finnish working life and employment rate so that they will be on a par with the other Nordic countries. That is why, it is important to take a look at the labour market reforms Sweden has already carried out as well as their mediation system, for example,” Satonen says.
