The Finnish Expatriate Parliament (FEP) is divided into seven geographical regions. In addition, Swedish-speaking Finns form a region of their own. Each region has its own FEP representative. The regions have their own home pages, where you can find information about the regions' activities (see left here). The eight regional representatives of your regions are pleased to tell more.
The regional FEP representatives are Deputy Speakers of the Finnish Expatriate Parliament who together with the Speaker form the FEP Speakers' Council. You can read more about the work of the Speakers' Council on the Speakers' Council's own page.
