Finland and Finnish business life are thriving, Finnish people are active and well, and our country is competitive in the world markets — This is the vision in Finland's maritime strategy that was submitted to Merja Kyllönen, Minister of Transport, on 12 March, said a press release of the Ministry of Transport and Communications.
Finland's success is supported by smart and appropriate maritime connections.
Finland's maritime strategy for 2014-2022 provides an overall view that serves Finland's economy, business life and employment and takes account of the new environmental norms. 
The drafting process of the strategy was open and completed together with the maritime sector and operators in that field, said the release. 
"The importance of the maritime sector for Finnish competitiveness is crucial. I am delighted that we now have an overall view of the challenges ahead of us and of the measures we will need in the future. The maritime sector involves a lot of growth potential that we really need to utilise", says Minister Kyllönen.
Finland is a land of maritime transport. Effective sea connections are a necessity for Finland's business life and thus the entire society.
Finland and its national success and well-being are highly dependent on maritime transport, according to the release.
