Helsinki Region Cooperation Assembly
The Helsinki Region Cooperation Assembly is the cooperation body of the leading elected officials of fourteen municipalities in the Helsinki region. Participating are the cities of the Helsinki Metropolitan Area (Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa and Kauniainen) and the Central Uusimaa KUU-MA municipalities (Järvenpää, Nurmijärvi, Tuusula, Kerava, Mäntsälä, Pornainen, Hyvinkää, Kirkkonummi, Vihti and Sipoo). The Helsinki Region Cooperation Agreement came into force on 1 October 2005.
Regional cooperation aims to secure the Helsinki region’s international competitiveness. It is based on a shared view of the region’s municipalities on the challenges of the area and a shared goal to promote the area’s development.
Regional cooperation focuses particularly on land use, housing and transport issues as well as regional services. Decisions on the details of the cooperation are made under an annual action plan.
