Agenda for Sustainable Growth
Sustainable growth is a requirement for wellbeing in Finland, and one for which the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment creates opportunities.
The Agenda for Sustainable Growth represents Finland’s growth policy over a long horizon extending beyond individual government terms. Public officials carrying out preparatory work will be able to draw upon this agenda to raise proposals relevant to current political decision-making, with the agenda helping to ensure coherence in policy.
The objective is to extensively share and develop a common understanding of the significance and mechanisms of economic growth and the administrative and policy tools available to influence it.
Spearheads of the Agenda for Sustainable Growth
- We will turn the transformation of work into an opportunity.
That is why employment and industrial policies must be better integrated.
- We want to succeed in global competition.
That is why we will reform our innovation policy.

That is why we will reform our regional development and urban policies.
- We will tap the potential of the energy transition.
That is why we will help the Finnish energy sector utilise its strengths commercially.
- We will influence the EU’s future.
That is why the Finnish EU Presidency will highlight trade policy, a more efficient internal market, sustainable development, the circular economy and digitalisation.
