Business and Competition Policy
The core missions of the business and competition policy of Suomen Yrittäjät are
- to strengthen a pro-entrepreneurship business policy and regional development on the municipal, provincial and national levels
- to facilitate a smoothly operating market and competition neutrality
- to strengthen the multi-producer model in public sector service production, particularly in social and healthcare services
- to improve the chances of SMEs in public procurement.
One of the key strengths of Suomen Yrittäjät is that we are present in every municipality in Finland through our local societies. Our regional associations, on the other hand, serve as natural partners for the new provinces. The main focus of our municipal and provincial advocacy is on systematic, entrepreneur-oriented business policy, good procurement and the improved use of the private sector as part of the public service system.
Our goal is for every municipality and province to engage in open, continuous dialogue with entrepreneurs. Also, we want entrepreneurship to be taken into account both in strategy and in day-to-day work and decisions. Concrete tools for a pro-entrepreneurship industrial policy, the multi-producer model and good procurement can be found at www.yrittajat.fi/kunta.
