STRATEGIC GOALS

 

The Finnish Waterway Association wants to contribute to improving the state of the Finnish waterway network, equipment and stock, as well as transmission capacity so that waterway traffic and transport remains competitive and interesting in the future as well.

 

We collect, refine and deliver high-quality information to our members and stakeholders.
