government’s budget session

Commerce sector messages for the Government budget session: promote purchasing power, provide incentives for the green transition and boost local bargaining

The past year has been hard for the service sector in general and especially for some companies in the specialty goods trade. Commerce expects the Government to make decisions in its budget session to boost new growth and increase employment. Tools used to achieve these objectives should include promoting local bargaining, ensuring consumers’ purchasing power and tax solutions that support the green transition.

The competitive strength of services is also crucial to the strengthening of employment

The decisions of the government’s budget session are not sufficient for resolving employment problems, and the tax decisions are also still inadequate. The Finnish Commerce Federation calls for the government to take the service sector and competitive strength of commerce into consideration alongside other sectors so that the wheels of the economy can be set in motion.
