Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin will take an 18-day vacation between the second half of July and the first week of August.
According to a statement released by the Government Communications Department, the head of the government will enjoy her summer break between 20 July and 7 August.
Marin is also -together with the Ministers of Finance and European Affairs- the member of the government who will delay the start of her vacation the most, but she surely has a good reason for this: the meeting that the leaders of the EU will hold on July 17-18 in Brussels to try to overcome their differences around the recovery plan of 750 billion proposed by the European Commission to leave behind the economic crisis caused by Covid-19.
