The government of Finland has released a detailed plan on how it wants to implement key projects worth more than €1bn.

The Implementation plan for the key projects and reforms of the Government’s strategic programme, which was published yesterday, sets out how projects in five key areas as well as a number of structural reform programmes will be put into practice.

The five priorities are employment and competitiveness; knowledge and education; wellbeing and health; bioeconomy and clean solutions; and digitalisation, experiments and deregulation.

The plan sets out reforms to the pensions system; social welfare and health care, and regional and central government.

The key projects have been prepared by ministerial working groups, which were formed earlier this year. Responsible ministers have been appointed for each key project, whose effectiveness is monitored by using specific indicators.

Ministers are supported by the secretariat for government strategy work, which includes senior civil servants.
