Minister of Economic Affairs Mika Lintilä has invited former prime minister Esko Aho to examine the positive structural change occurring in connection with the maritime cluster and the automotive industry.

“There’s a positive trend under way in the Varsinais-Suomi region, where the maritime cluster and the car industry are recruiting more people. As a result we are also looking at the ways of easing any difficulties in recruitment and labour mobility,” says Minister Lintilä.

“In some locations there is already a recruitment problem due to a mismatch with the labour market. The aim is to use Aho’s review as a pilot in connection with similar future cases here or elsewhere in the country.

The review should be ready during the early part of the summer.
