The two-day meeting of the speakers of the parliaments of the Baltic States and Nordic Countries (NB8) at Pädaste on Muhu Island ended today. It was the tenth meeting of the NB8 Speakers. Lively discussions took place on the subjects concerning the European Union and the issues of neighbourhood policy.
The cooperation of the NB8 parliaments in the future was also spoken about. According to the President of the Riigikogu Ene Ergma, such meetings are very important. “The Baltic States and the Nordic Countries share common values and can have good cooperation both in the European Union and outside of it. This is our strength, and acting together makes our voice heard,” she stressed.
At the end of the meeting, it was decided to hold the next meeting in August 2012 in Finland.
