The Nordic Council delegates will discuss the future of the Council's cooperation with Russia in Khanty-Mansiysk on 8-9 June 2009. The capital city of Ugra will host delegations from Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland.
Representatives of the regional government told RusBusinessNews that the major issues the Nordic countries are worried about are environmental protection and preservation of the indigenous peoples' heritage. Ugra is the leader among Russian regions in the implementation of such programmes. For instance, on 2 June 2009 the 13th International Ecological Television Festival "To Save and to Preserve" opened in Khanty-Mansiysk. Journalists from 120 Russian, European and Asian TV companies will take part in the festival.
The Nordic Council was founded in 1952 by Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Finland. Its major objective is to actively facilitate cooperation between the Nordic countries. Thanks to the Council's actions the Nordic countries established common labour market and unified healthcare, social security and education standards.
