The Swedish model of a single government agency would not suit Finland, said a working group charged with evaluating the need for reforms in the government in its interim report.

The parliamentary committee in the report submitted to Transport and Local Government Minister Paula Risikko said a survey conducted by it also has found no support for the Swedish model.
The idea to have a single government agency was brought up by Risikko’s predecessor Henna Virkkunen a year ago.

The model would not be appropriate and sensible for the country, remarked Tapani Mäkinen, chair of the committee examining the matter, during the report’s handing-over ceremony.

The group is looking for other ways to improve the government’s policy efficiency and its ability to implement policies more coherently. The final report is expected to be ready in January next year.
