Sweden’s presidency 2018

An inclusive, sustainable, innovative, safe, and open Nordic Region forms the basis for Sweden’s presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers in 2018. Digitisation is a recurrent theme throughout Sweden’s presidency programme.

The Nordic countries have a strong tradition of democracy and popular movements, characterised by equality, gender equality, sustainability, and co-operation. The continuous exchange of knowledge and culture serves as a basis for the Nordic prime ministers’ vision of the Nordic Region as the most integrated in the world.

The Nordic countries are heavily involved in international affairs, and promote European cohesion and an active UN. The Nordic prime ministerial initiative Nordic Solutions to Global Challenges aims to share positive Nordic experiences with the rest of the world.
