FTimes-FNN Report, Feb 16

The government on Thursday published the first ever defence policy report which defines defence policy guidelines for maintaining, developing and using Finland's defence capabilities.

Through implementing the Defence Policy Report Finland secures its defence capabilities in a changing security situation, creates preconditions for maintaining a credible defence system that covers the entire territory and outlines the implementation of strategic performance projects, said an official press release.

 It will also improve the readiness of the Defence Forces and steer both the deepening of defence cooperation and development of national legislation. The timeline extends into the mid-2020s.

The 36-page report highlighted various aspects of country´s defence security including number of arms forces, enhancing arms and ammunition, defence cooperation etc.,   

The Defence Policy Report was drawn up, for the first time, as a separate report.

It follows the report by a parliamentary working group (the Parliamentary Office Publication 3/2014) and the Government Report on Finnish Foreign and Security Policy (Prime Minister's Office Publication 7/2016).

The Defence Policy Report has been prepared through broad-based cross-sectoral cooperation and also a parliamentary monitoring group was consulted. Click Here to read the full report.
