    Tampere is a dynamic supra-provincial centre with more than 240,000 inhabitants, and also the centre of the Tampere Region. Tampere has succeeded in regenerating itself from the realm of heavy industry into a modern locomotive of high technology.

    The city's image as the most popular Finnish city people want to move to and as a student city further strengthens its growth and secures the availability of skilled manpower in the long run.

    The current development trend of the city of Tampere has maintained the high value of property. The high value of property and the city's excellent logistical location from the point of view of national accessibility has brought the city clear advantages when it comes to investment and location decisions.
