Active debate on economic policies
Etla aims to be Finland’s most important economic research institute for economic policy-making.
Etla assesses economic policy decisions and proposals with economic research and makes policy recommendations. Etla is bold and active in social debate.
Etla has a current, comprehensive view on the state of the Finnish economy and an overall economic forecast based on this, compiled utilizing state-of-the-art methods.
We strive that the rest of the research community, including scientific researchers outside economics, political policy-makers, authorities, interest groups, businesses and media, always see Etla as a co-operative partner.
Useful information for decision-making
We believe information is useful when it is relevant to decision-making, produced at the right time with the most advanced methods and high research ethics, and presented in a clear and easily understandable form.
When information is trustworthy, timely and useful for the decision-makers, scientific information is used more in policymaking.
The economic policy in Finland should be based on scientific research and acknowledge the importance of business sector success as the precondition of the well-being in Finland more clearly.
