Finland´s Regional Councils are statutory joint municipal authorities operating according to the principles of local self-government.
The Councils operate as regional development and regional planning authorities.
The Councils act as centres of development for the regions. They also pursue the interests of the region, its municipalities, inhabitants and businesses and carry out research, planning and analyses.
The Regional Council is also the organisation for cooperation between the various actors and influences within the region. The emphasis in regional planning and other regional development is on vision and strategic matters.
Regional Councils are joint authorities formed and principally funded by their member municipalities. The Councils also receive an annual state grant primarily for independent regional development of the business community.
