Norway’s presidency programme will form the basis for Nordic inter-governmental co-operation in 2017 and is divided into three main themes:
- 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.
