Nordic affairs

Nordic cooperation builds on the common values of the Nordic countries and is one of the world’s oldest forms of regional cooperation. The Nordic region will be the world’s most sustainable and integrated region by 2030. This vision was adopted by the Nordic prime ministers in 2019 and will become a reality through initiatives for a green, competitive and socially sustainable Nordic region. Sweden will pursue closer and stronger Nordic cooperation. The Nordic countries are facing a number of challenges, and we can tackle them better together than alone.
