Finnish export unions urge the Finnish Government to improve the competitiveness and prerequisites of Finnish industries, writes Demokraatti. According to the unions, the Government must keep its promise not to add expenses to the industries during this electoral term. The unions say that the Government must be active in the EU’s energy and climate policy in a way that improves competitiveness. Decisions regarding industries must be predictable and long-term. Timo Jaatinen of the Finnish Forest Industries notes that Brexit and protectionism create threats to industries in Finland.
