Today, our guest of honour was Prime Minister Mari Kiviniemi. The Prime Minister has visited many earlier Housing Fairs and Holiday Housing Fairs, for instance at Valkeakoski in 2009. Ms. Kiviniemi seemed to enjoy herself and spent a full day at the Fair visiting the show houses and exhibitions. She was well informed of the significant increase in the housing energy efficiency especially during the past few years. The Prime Minister also gave full credit to the Kuopio city planners for having flexibly and open-mindedly zoned Kuopio for a variety of diversified housing developments.
