In line with the Government Programme the Ministry aims at creating a well-functioning market environment for the supply and demand of transport, communications and digital services. This provides new business opportunities, promotes exports, and increases the line of services.
Regulation of communications markets aims at technology-neutral, high-quality, reasonably priced and comprehensive services.
In Finland the communications sector, and particularly telecommunications, has for a long time been open to competition. Despite the limited amount of spectrum, a sparse population and a small communications market, Finland is able to provide communications services that are inexpensive and represent high standards on international terms.
The objectives of the media market development are to provide the Finnish audience with high-quality contents and to ensure that the Finnish media sector is able to respond to the international competition.
