According to Orpo, it is important that everyone is involved in the negotiations.

– You can't conclude anything at all. People who have strong expertise in substance have been chosen to lead the group. We can only conclude that we have strong experts, Orpo summarizes.
“There is a good spirit in the negotiations”

The first actual day of negotiations
When Orpo arrived at Säätytalo in the morning, he said that there is a lot of working together and solving things ahead. Orpo said that he hopes that solutions will be sought together in the negotiations.
– I have told everyone that the intention is not to negotiate every issue until the end, but to build solutions to things together. In other words, we are not seeking profits in negotiations, but common solutions, Orpo said.
