Join us to create the future of Kuopio together.
Our vision is to be the capital, where the good life lives. Health, vitality and happiness are the elements of good life.
These are the strategic priorities of the vision of Kuopio in 2030:
The Kuopio strategy comprises four fundamental properties: Growing Kuopio, Happy and Healthy Kuopio, Resource-wice Kuopio and Progressive Kuopio. The success factors of Kuopio have been categorized accordingly. Digitalization, internationality and partnership are three additional themes integrated in all levels of the strategy.
”Kuopio with it’s partners enables sustainable growth and a good life.”
In terms of air traffic, the number of available flights is good. It is possible to fly on a business trip from Kuopio to Europe and return on the same day. However, Kuopio needs more operators in air traffic, which would have a positive impact on the price level.
The conditions of main roads should be maintained so that their speeds can remain comparable. National road 5 is a kind of channel of growth and highly significant for the entire province and eastern Finland as a whole. Its development into a continuous route with a year-round speed limit of 100 km/h will intensify cooperation all along the road between Varkaus and Iisalmi and boost the efficiency of public economy.
The eastern rail connetions will bring fast and reliable connections all across Eastern Finland. The projected Eastern rail connection to Helsinki via Kouvola and Porvoo is the common goal of seven provincial centres. The Eastern rail connection affects one million people in Finland alone. Improving transport connections is vitally important to eastern Finland in terms of attracting businesses, daily travel and corporate investments.
