The Nordic Council of Ministers is an international organisation for governmental cooperation among the five Nordic countries: Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Norway and Sweden.
The Nordic Council of Ministers’ Office in Latvia, founded in 1991, has a central role in facilitating and implementing Nordic cooperation with Latvia. The office is collaborating with national and regional institutions, NGOs and Nordic diplomatic representations, carrying out projects in various fields, including Nordic and EU projects and joint Nordic-Baltic projects.
Latvia’s line ministries engage in cooperation with Nordic countries due to activities by the Nordic Council of Ministers. Latvian officials take part in the Nordic Council of Ministers working groups, meetings, seminars and conferences, and Latvia’s institutions launch joint projects with the Nordic Council of Ministers.
The activities of the NCM Office in Latvia are regulated by the Guidelines for the Nordic Council of Minister's cooperation with Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
