My intention is to work for the sake of offering the next generations an opportunity to live in a united, secure and wealthy Europe.
– EU should strengthen its efforts to combat corruption, criminality, misuse and waste.
– EU’s credibility must be strengthened – split among the memberstates should be abolished, decisionmaking more efficient, and EU more proactive globally. We need bridge-builders, good competitivity and a strategy about how EU would survive. We have to avoid with all means a break-down of EU

- The Europe I want is for all ages. – Invest in the future: climate and environment, research and education. - Work on cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region and on relations with neighbouring countries should be up-graded – and a well functioning, secure European market should be guaranteed. Finland is the northernmost member of EU and should require up-grading of interest in the northernmost regions of the EU - in the cooperation in the Arctic region
