Economic Adaptation 2024

Economic Adaptation 2024

The City of Joensuu must permanently balance its economy by more than €20 million between 2024 and 2026. The need for adaptation is mainly due to the reduced government transfers resulting from the wellbeing services counties reform.

At its meeting on 9 October 2023, Joensuu City Council decided to initiate the economic adaptation process. Joensuu commissioned FCG Oy to provide a report on the measures to balance the economy. The report is being used as a decision-making aid.

Information about the economic adaptation process will be updated on this website.

Proposed adaptation measures

Information on the adaptation measures has been published in stages. The adaptation measures to be published are preparations. The adaptation proposal and decisions will be published later.

Give feedback

We are collecting feedback on the economic adaptation and the presented alternatives. Responses will be taken into account in the handling of the matter.

Open feedback can be provided via the online form: Economic adjustment feedback channel (the channel was closed on Tuesday 30 April at 12 noon so that the feedback could be reviewed)

Feedback can also be provided by sending mail to the registry: Joensuun kaupungin kirjaamo, PO Box 59, 80101 Joensuu.


The proposal on economic adaptation measures will be completed at the end of March 2024. The City Council is expected to make the final decision about re-balancing in June.
