A renewable and enabling Finland. Development overview of the regional structure and traffic system 2050 (Helda)

Summary

In the conditions of internationalisation and increasing competition, as well as for the sake of environmental sustainability, it is important that the development of Finland’s regional structure and traffic system is based on an overall vision. In this way, Finland’s development into a competitive, prosperous, low-carbon country can be promoted.

The development overview is used to form a national vision of the regional structure set as the target and the traffic system that supports it until 2050. The foundation pillars of the regional structure and traffic system set as the target include strengthening Finland’s international position, a polycentric regional structure as well as developing traffic services and an enabling infrastructure. In the development overview, the regional structure and traffic system have been defined by taking advantage of the special characteristics of the different parts of the country as well as the regional strengths and the division of labour between regions.
