Finland’s Recovery and Resilience Plan

Distribution of funding under Finland’s national recovery plan: green transition EUR 822 million, digital transformation EUR 217 million, employment and skills 636 million and health and social services EUR 400 million.

Finland’s Recovery and Resilience Plan was published on 26 May 2021. The Plan forms part of the Sustainable Growth Programme for Finland.

For the Sustainable Growth Programme, the Government has selected investment projects and reforms that can achieve a long-term positive impact. The aim is to promote structural adjustment of the economy through particular packages of measures.

The preparatory work has focused on major packages with a significant impact rather than distributing resources among projects that are too small and have too little impact. The reforms are aimed at encouraging private investment and supporting systemic solutions.
Finland’s Recovery and Resilience Plan is centred on four priorities:

  1. Green transition
  2. Digitalisation
  3. Employment and skills
  4. Health and social services.

The European Commission published a positive assessment of Finland’s Recovery and Resilience Plan on 4 October 2021. The finance ministers of the EU Member States discussed Finland’s plan in their video conference on 28 October. The Council of the EU formally approved the plan by written procedure on 29 October 2021.
