The Nordic perspective on 2005, report from the Nordic council of Ministers
A Year of Renewal
Annual report from the Nordic Council and the Nordic Council of Ministers
New areas of co-operation, modernisation of the organisations and greater freedom of movement for Nordic citizens and businesses are among the outcomes of Nordic co-operation in 2005.
Co-operation with Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania on a basis of equal partnership was consolidated during the year. The Council of Ministers adopted a new, more focused programme to develop co-operation with Russia. An agreement to open a Nordic Council of Ministers office in Kaliningrad was signed, and Russian MPs expressed an interest in stepping up co-operation.
