TURKU REGION – MARITIME URBAN CULTURE

The Turku region is a powerful growth centre in the Baltic Sea area. The diverse economic structure, high quality educational, cultural and service provisions, along with the beautiful archipelago form an irresistible combination.

Approximately 22,000 companies operate in the region. The strongest sectors are the maritime, metal and food industries, as well as biotechnology, the ICT industry, tourism and the creative sectors.

 

 

A skilled workforce, diverse educational opportunities, and functional and suitable premises are available in the region, no matter what the sector. Rental prices for premises are noticeably cheaper than in the Helsinki region.

The Turku region’s location makes it a natural hub between east and west. The connections also work on a national level, and Turku plays a key role in the emerging Stockholm-Turku-Helsinki-St Petersburg axis.
