One of the strategies included in the Government Programme of Prime Minister Antti Rinne is a strategy of sustainable growth. The strategy will aim for a more diverse industrial structure, better productivity, export growth, business renewal and a stronger business environment. The strategy also envisages the creation of international billioneuro ecosystems. The outlines for growth policy decided earlier at the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment will now be updated and coordinated with the strategy of sustainable growth (Agenda for Sustainable Growth of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment LINKKI). The strategy of sustainable growth is also linked to other documents to be prepared that are mentioned in the Government Programme, such as the entrepreneurship strategy and international growth programme, and the EU Industrial Policy Strategy. The strategy for a low-carbon economy also determines the framework conditions of the strategy of sustainable growth, while the transformation of the energy market offers growth opportunities for Finnish expertise.
The employment objective set in the Government Programme: the employment rate will be raised to 75 per cent and the number of people in employment will increase by a minimum of 60,000 by the end of 2023. During the same time, the unemployment rate should decrease to 4.8 per cent. The strategy of sustainable growth will support the attainment of these objectives.
