The President of the Nordic Council for 2019, Jessica Polfjärd, is enthusiastic about the substance and relevance of the debate as she looks back on the 70th Session of the Nordic Council. Her role as President will commence in January when Sweden takes over the presidency from Norway.
Polfjärd, who belongs to the Conservative Group, wants to build on the issues pursued by the Norwegian presidency in 2018, as well as address new areas.
“First and foremost, we will continue our efforts on gender equality, climate issues, barriers to the freedom of movement, and democracy,” she says. Read the announcement in English here.
