For the past decade Helsinki has been growing at a rate that makes us proud. Helsinki is attracting new inhabitants from everywhere in the world, giving us the opportunity to build an even more functional, interesting and beautiful environment for our citizens.
Helsinki’s unprecedented growth and international ambitions have convinced us that the best way a city can serve its residents, companies and visitors is by providing a happy and functional everyday life. We also believe that good city infrastructure is not only improving our own operations, but also attracting companies with the freshest new ideas and greatest talents to Helsinki.
Helsinki is undergoing a massive transformation that will totally rewrite the script for the metropolitan area. Many of Europe’s biggest urban development projects are underway in the area; resulting in the perfect mix of economic, social and ecological sustainability.
Growth is an excellent opportunity to drive forward ambitious climate actions aiming at carbon neutrality by 2035. Smart energy solutions, circular economy, innovations in public transportation – including two major light rail projects – and efficient use of digitalization are all important elements that will help us reach our target.
Helsinki wants to become the most attractive place for people and companies working for a better world. Our commitment is to do things a little better every day.
We welcome new partners, from near and far, to join us in building an even better Helsinki of the future.
Ms Anni Sinnemäki
Deputy Mayor of Helsinki
It’s our great pleasure to welcome you to the Helsinki Finland stand at EXPO REAL 2018.
The Helsinki Metropolitan Area is one of the fastest growing regions in Europe. Many of Europe’s biggest urban development projects are under-way in Helsinki. Sustainable growth relies on rails connecting new urban areas easily accessible also in other growth centers in Finland.
Come and find out more about several ongoing development and construction projects in Helsinki Metropolitan Area including the Helsinki Ring of Industry as well as in the cities of Tampere and Turku.
We are looking forward to meeting you at our stand B1.320 during the show!
