The Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY Centres,[1] Finnish: elinkeino-, liikenne ja ympäristökeskus, ELY-keskus;[2] Swedish: Närings- trafik- och miljöcentralen, NTM-centralerna[3] ) are responsible for the regional implementation and development tasks of the central government in Finland.

Finland has a total of 15 ELY Centres, which are tasked with promoting regional competitiveness, well-being and sustainable development and curbing climate change.

ELY Centres have three areas of responsibility:

The Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment steer and supervise the activities of the Employment and Economic Development Offices (fi) (TE Offices). Not all ELY Centres deal with all three areas of responsibility as they can also manage duties on each other's behalf.
