REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY OF PÄIJÄT-HÄME
The main task of the Regional Council is to define, update, maintain and implement the general Development Strategy of the region. The strategy draws the guidelines for the regional future development. The strategy defines goals and measures for different development programmes (including EU Structural Funds implementation) and the Regional Plan. It also defines the division of labour between different programmes, plans and actors in the field of the regional development.
In the Regional Council of Päijät-Häme strategic planning and management has been in focus during the recent years. Our intension is to create a continuous, iterative strategic decision process which gives us an opportunity to learn about the future and to define the strategy step by step. An essential part of the process is an open, transparent participation of different regional actors and decision makers. Our ambitious objective is to connect better than before general guidelines, individual measures, projects and acts.
