Minister for Nordic Cooperation Thomas Blomqvist will attend an informal online meeting of Ministers for Nordic Cooperation on 23 November 2020.

The meeting will approve next year’s budget for the Nordic Council of Ministers and the Council's Action Plan for 2021–2024. The Action Plan paves the way for the implementation of the Vision 2030 that the Nordic Prime Minister adopted last summer. According to the new vision, the objective is to make the Nordic region the most sustainable and integrated region in the world by 2030. A draft version of the document, called Our Vision 2030, has been published on the Secretariat’s website. The Action Plan will be translated into Finnish after its adoption.

At the meeting, the ministers will discuss the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on Nordic cooperation. Other topics of discussion on the agenda are strengthening of civil society's participation in the Nordic cooperation, and the Nordic Council of Minister’s stronger role in Belarus to support its democracy development.

The meeting will be the last one during the Danish Presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers. Finland’s Nordic Presidency will start in January 2021. The programme can be accessed in a digital format.
