Sustainable Growth Programme for Finland.

The EU’s Economic and Financial Affairs Council approved Finland’s updated Recovery and Resilience Plan on 14 March.

Funding for phasing out oil heating and for private charging infrastructure for electric vehicles was dropped from the Plan, as outlined by the Ministerial Working Group on Sustainable Growth in Finland last June. Changes were also made to 18 investments.

Minister of Finance Annika Saarikko represented Finland at the meeting.

The Recovery and Resilience Plan is part of the Sustainable Growth Programme for Finland, which will boost reforms and investments. The funding for the Plan comes from the EU Recovery and Resilience Facility.
