Prime Ministers of Finland and Denmark

Prime Minister Petteri Orpo and Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen will meet in Copenhagen on Monday 6 May. After their bilateral meeting, the prime ministers will open the newly renovated Finnish Embassy.

Prime Minister Orpo and Prime Minister Frederiksen will discuss bilateral relations and topical EU issues, including the next European Commission’s work programme and the Danish Presidency of the Council of the EU, which will begin in the second half of 2025. 

“Denmark is an important Nordic partner for Finland when it comes to business cooperation, EU affairs and strengthening security in the Baltic Sea region. We share many of the same views about improving Europe’s competitiveness and defence, and we plan to intensify our cooperation both bilaterally and as part of the EU and Nordic communities,” says Prime Minister Orpo. 

Later that day, the prime ministers will open the new premises of the Embassy of Finland in Copenhagen. After two years of renovations, the embassy, the consulate, Business Finland and the official residence of the Head of Mission are now under one roof.
