Amendments to the Municipal Act and other reforms are set to change the ownership structures of ports, with the aim of enhancing competition within and between ports. Under the new regime, a municipality must establish a corporation for all of its activities when it acts in competitive markets. Meanwhile, the much-debated fairway dues are also subject to possible revision.
Partners Matti Komonen and Herman Ljungberg at Hammarström Puhakka Partners, Attorneys Ltd, have written an update on this matter. The update titled “Ports and port operations in revision” has been published in the International Law Office’s newsletter.
