Sustainable Growth Programme for Finland.

The ministerial working group on sustainable growth for Finland decided on Tuesday 13 April that the final version of Finland’s Recovery and Resilience Plan will be submitted to the European Union in May.

All EU countries are required to present a national Recovery and Resilience Plan in order to receive funding from the EU’s Recovery and Resilience Facility. Finland’s Plan will form part of the Sustainable Growth Programme for Finland.

The preliminary version of Finland's Recovery and Resilience Plan was completed on 15 March. The final version of the Plan was to be submitted to the EU on 30 April, but the ministerial working group has decided to change the timetable.

“Discussions with the European Commission have progressed well but are still in progress. A lot of technical work is involved, so completion of the final Recovery and Resilience Plan will require some additional time,” says the chair of the ministerial working group, Minister of Finance Matti Vanhanen.
