President of Finland Sauli Niinistö will make four remote visits to municipal areas next week.

The president plans to virtually visit the municipality of Taipalsaari and the city of Tampere on Wednesday 10 June, and then the municipality of Suonenjoki and the city of Seinäjoki on Friday 12 June.

The decision to visit the areas remotely, instead of a physical visit, is due to the exceptional circumstances brought about by the coronavirus pandemic, the President said.

During the remote visits, Niinistö will meet with the management of the municipalities and cities, as well as with representatives of the business community and universities.

Discussions will focus on how each of the local regions have adapted to the coronavirus pandemic, among other topics.

In addition to these meeting, President Niinistö will also take a remote tour of the Sarviniemi hiking area near Taipalsaari.

In Tampere, he will meet the management and students of the Tampere University community formed by the University of Tampere and the University of Applied Sciences.

In Suonenjoki and Seinäjoki, President Niinistö will talk with representatives of local companies.

The president’s office also announced that video highlights of the remote visits will be published at a later date.
