Regional strategic programmes
The regional strategic programme is drawn up for a medium term, and it is intended to direct and coordinate regional development work in the years to come. The regional strategic programme outlines regional development targets, key projects and measures, and a financing plan for the programme for the years to come. These are based on the development needs and potential of the region.
When drawing up a regional strategic programme, the region should take account of the national regional development targets set by the Government and the regional development strategies adopted by different administrative sectors. The regional strategic programme is designed to act as an umbrella programme coordinating regional development work. The programme coordinates the national targets, special national programmes implemented by the region, programmes co-financed by the European Union (EU) and the strategies and development work of different authorities. An implementation plan for the regional strategic programme concretely specifies the key measures and projects and the desired level of financing.
