The event begun with opening words by IH Oulu’s coordinator Rikupekka Leinonen, who pointed out the government program, which caused a lot of discussion, however, it is only a plan.
– It does not mean that everything planned by the government program will take place, Leinonen said.
– We will organize an info session for those who are interested during the autumn time or when there is more info available. We will invite experts who are going to discuss about the situation and how the processes will take place, when there is a new government and new program.
