Ziemeļvalstu Ministru padomes birojs Latvijā (NORDEN)
Nordic Council of Ministers' Office in Latvia
The Nordic Council of Ministers was formed in 1971 and is the official inter-governmental body for cooperation in the Nordic Region. The Nordic region consists of the following countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. It also includes three self-governing areas: The Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland. Cooperation between the Baltic countries and the Nordic Council of Ministers was launched in 1991 when the NCM opened its offices in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. Ever since then, the The Nordic Council of Ministers’ Office in Latvia has built a strong bridge of values and networks between the Nordics and Baltics.
