The sub-regions in the Bothnian Corridor area comprise the strongest growth area in Finland. The corridor with its ports is a strategically important transport route for Finnish and Swedish industries, especially export-oriented extractive, metal, and mining industries. At the moment, the traffic system of the corridor has many bottlenecks causing expenses, delays and uncertainty for business activities that depend on transports. The development of the Bothnian Corridor is a necessary precondition for ensuring the sustainable economic growth of Northern Europe.
This is important also for the Midnordic Green Transport Corridor.
