Commerce sector pleased with the government’s RDI investments – structural reform and measures to strengthen employment still lacking 

In the view of the Finnish Commerce Federation, the decisions taken in the government’s budget framework session are mostly a step in the right direction, but insufficient in terms of reform. The commerce sector is satisfied with the government’s RDI decisions, as they will strengthen growth over the long term. It is also necessary to invest in the aftermath of the war in Ukraine and in ensuring Finland’s security. However, the session provided no new solutions to improve employment or dismantle incentive traps.
