The Prime Minister of Finland Sanna Marin said at a joint press conference that countries will continue to work together to improve understanding of sustainable forest management in Northern Europe.
Andersson said that both Finland and Sweden are working to lead the green transition not only to reduce emissions but also to strengthen competitiveness and create new jobs.
Both countries have the largest forest areas in the EU and the forest industry is a key economic resource for them.
Marin and Andersson also discussed the common goals of their countries’ security and defense policies.
Responding to questions, the prime ministers said they had no plans to apply for membership in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
Traditionally, the Prime Ministers of Finland and Sweden meet shortly after taking office. This was Andersson’s first visit abroad after the complaint.
Andersson also met with President Sauli Niinisö.
