Yesterday the embassy joined a session of the Board for Labour, Social Issues, Social Inclusion and Poverty Reduction in the Serbian National Assembly. The main focus of the session was freedom of movement of labour between the Dayton Agreement Countries, with use of experiences from the Nordic cooperation. Recommendations from the Danish supported report elaborated by the Igman initiative were presented at the session.

Nordic Cooperation refers to the work of the 5 members of The Nordic Council. Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland have over decades collaborated to improve internal ties and regulation. One of the significant features of the Nordic Cooperation is the free movement of labour within the region.                                                                      We hope that sharing our Nordic experiences can be of inspiration to countries in the region.

In 2015, Denmark, in co-operation with Greenland and the Faroe Islands, holds the Presidency for Nordic Council of Ministers. You can read more about the activities here
