Helsingin Sanomat has interviewed Kare Halonen, Finland’s State Secretary for EU Affairs since 2008. He visits Brussels about 15 times a year, and takes part in preparing summits with other EU Member States advisors. The article states that it is quite justified to claim that no one else has had more influence on Finland’s EU policy during the last few years than Mr Halonen. He also acts as Prime Minister Juha Sipilä’s EU adviser.
