The Nordic countries are leaders when it comes to health care, environmental stewardship and education. World Economic Forums 2016 Global Gender Gap Report ranked Iceland, Finland, Norway and Sweden as the top four countries for gender equality. According to the European Commission report, 94% of Finns, 90% of Swedes and 87% of Danes are satisfied with their healthcare. And the Global Innovation Index ranked Sweden second last year, with all the Nordics solidly and consistently in the top 25. What explains these impressive figures?

Finnish Ambassador to the U.S., Ms. Kirsti Kauppi, Ambassador András Simonyi of the Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Transatlantic Relations, and Norway’s Consul General, Ambassador Hilde Janne Skorpen, will take us on a journey through the Nordic region. They will share insights about their successes where many other OECD nations have struggled, as well as their challenges. Also, we will discuss current transatlantic relations from a Northern European perspective.
