Sustainable Growth Programme in the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment and government agencies under its purview

Sustainable growth programme for Finland

The Sustainable Growth Programme for Finland will support growth that is ecologically, socially and economically sustainable in line with the aims of the Government Programme. The Programme will boost competitiveness, investment, RDI and measures to raise skill levels.

The implementation of Finland’s Sustainable Growth Programme will be supported by the EU’s Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF). The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment and government agencies under its purview opened the first calls for funding under the Programme in summer 2021.

Schedule for programme implementation 

Member States must present a national Recovery and Resilience Plan (RRP) in order to receive funding from the EU’s Recovery and Resilience Facility. Finland’s RRP is part of the Sustainable Growth Programme for Finland. The Government submitted its RRP to the Commission on 27 May 2021. The Council of the European Union formally approved the plan by written procedure on 29 October 2021.

Finland's share of funding from the EU's Recovery and Resilience Facility will decrease to EUR 1.8 billion at current prices, because Finland’s economy has developed better than forecast. The Ministerial Working Group on Sustainable Growth in Finland has outlined how Finland's Recovery and Resilience Plan will be updated to reflect this change.

Approximately half of the funding will be allocated to measures by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment and government agencies under its purview. Most of the funding will be allocated for 2022–2023. The reforms and investments in the Recovery and Resilience Plan must be completed by 31 August 2026 at the latest.
