The Ministry of Transport and Communications has published a second generation intelligent strategy for transport. The strategy furthers the melding of intelligent transport as part of all other forms of transport and Finnish transport policy.

The objective is to develop a transport system in Finland that is one of the world's most progressive and efficient and is also known for its accountability. Finland published the world's first intelligent transport strategy in 2009.

The strategy facilitates an increase in transport information services, improves the productivity and efficiency of the transport system and promotes the birth of ICT innovations.

ICT is used to effectively influence mobility and transport options and supports development of the transport system. At the same time, it helps people to move around more easily, safely and economically, as well as in a more environmentally friendly manner.

Intelligent transport is one of the fastest growing industries, which also offers attractive business opportunities for companies. The global intelligent transport market is worth tens of millions of euros.

Finland has excellent know-how in all areas of intelligent transport. Finnish companies now have a good opportunity to take a share of the intelligent transport market and give birth to new business operations, companies and jobs.
