Reforms in social welfare and health care services as well as growth services

The regional government, health and social services reform and the freedom of choice it may bring to customers means that, in some services, a competitive situation will arise between public and private social and health care service providers that does not exist in operations in the current system.

In growth services, such as recruitment, re-education and corporate services, the regional governments that will be responsible for arranging them have been encouraged to increasingly use the offering and innovation skills of private service providers. A competitive situation may arise between public and private growth service providers if the regional government decides to arrange the services based on market terms and also offers its own services on the market.

In order to achieve the targeted benefits produced by the market mechanism in health and social services, as well as growth services, competition neutrality must be ensured. The FCCA plays an important role in this.
