The event’s theme covered the strategic goals and future outlook of the NLS.

“Major societal development projects will be completed during this decade, including the building of the Residential and Commercial Property Information System and the updating of the National Topographic Database, with the NLS playing a significant part in moving them forward. Our goal is, and will be, to be a good partner and a reliable provider of information in national cooperation projects,” summarised Arvo Kokkonen, Director General of the NLS.

Minister Leppä encouraged the NLS to proactively highlight the organisation’s expertise.

“Reliable registers and datasets lay the foundation for societal activities, in which the NLS plays a significant part. The NLS is one of the world’s leading organisations in the geospatial data sector, and its work is very significant,” said Minister Leppä.
