The Nordic cooperation
The Nordic cooperation is among the world’s most comprehensive forms of regional cooperation, encompassing the political as well as the economic and cultural spheres. Including both Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, as well as the Faroe Islands, the Åland Islands and Greenland. Based on shared values, the Nordic community is striving for a strong Nordic region in a strong Europe.
The three main themes for Norway’s presidency are:
- The Nordic Region in transition
We will promote Nordic competitiveness, the green transition, the transition to a low-emission society, integration, and co-operation on health.
- The Nordic Region in Europe
We will work to strengthen our co-operation on European policy. A strong Nordic voice in Europe is good for the region and good for Europe.
- The Nordic Region in the world
We will further develop the Nordic strategic partnership on foreign policy.
Norway will also take a close look at synergies between Nordic and Nordic-Baltic co-operation.
