20.01.21 | Event
Baltisk webinar
Scanstock / Oxford Research A/S
How can the Nordic-Baltic relations develop in a dynamic context and in possible new priorities? How can political stability and economic development be promoted through Nordic-Baltic co-operation? How can countries in the region learn from each other, when facing sometimes similar, sometimes diverging societal challenges? How can the new vision 2030 for the Nordic Council of Ministers, with its focus on green development, competitiveness and socially sustainable development, be instrumental in the process?
