The parties to the government formations talks have agreed on a EUR 1.6 billion investment package to increase repair activities and promote the strategic flagship initiatives. According to the negotiation steering group, party leaders Juha Sipilä, Timo Soini and Alexander Stubb, the programme will be implemented over the next three years.
Discussions on the composition of the ministries and number of ministers will continue on Monday morning at 08.30.
Sipilä said that all key issues have now been resolved. Information on the outcome will be given at a press conference on Wednesday, 27 May. Sipilä also said that in June the new Government will work in an open floor-plan office together with key civil servants to draw up the Government Action Plan. The ministers will move to their new ministries only after this has been accomplished.
