26 Nov 2018

Finland is to create a new body to oversee both the country’s telecoms market and its transport sector. On 1 January 2019 the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority (FICORA), the Finnish Transport Safety Agency (Trafi) and certain functions of the Finnish Transport Agency will be merged to form the new Finnish Transport and Communications Agency, or Traficom. The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MoTC) says it plans to appoint the new Director General of the Agency by the end of November.
