Events have been highlighted in the strategy programme of Kuhmo. The strategy programme of Kuhmo was updated at the end of last year. We have defined a new strategy vision in it and it goes as follows: “Kuhmo, the paradise of living and leisure”. Kuhmo is also seen as the countryside town of opportunities. The strategy vision is based on the following aspects: forest industry and wood expertise, beautiful water and forest nature, culture, vibrant countryside, functioning basic services and the opportunities deriving from the proximity of Russia. Particularly important points in the strategy are the priorities of operations which are used to reach the strategy vision. These priorities include such things as: growth in businesses and investments, effective services, correct number of employees working in the municipality and the economic balance.
