The Nordic labour market in an extended Europe
Ever since the early Nineties there has been a close cooperation between the Nordic and the Baltic countries. As the Baltic countries and Poland become members of the EU, the professed openness acclaimed by the Nordic countries through fifty years of cooperation is being put to the test.
Nordic cooperation - two sides to the coin?
“The Nordic countries are unique” “The Nordic countries are a model” “The Nordic countries may serve as an example”. The reputation of the Nordic countries is on the whole rather favourable.
Need for closer co-operation on labour force mobility between Nordic and Baltic countries
Ministers of labour from the Nordic countries and Baltic states have agreed to increase bilateral and multilateral dialogue and the exchange of views on common labour market policy issues actively and on all levels. The decision was reached at the first meeting between the Nordic and Baltic ministers of labour held in Tavastehus, Finland, on 22 October. The main issue of discussion concerned labour force mobility between the Nordic and Baltic countries. The Finnish Minister of Labour, Tarja Filatov, hosted the meeting. Due to regional differences in employment and the increasing average age of the labour force, questions concerning labour force mobility have played a key role during the Finnish chairmanship of the Nordic cooperation this year.
