NORDIC LEADERS HERE TO DISCUSS BUSINESS ISSUES

 NORDIC LEADERS HERE TO DISCUSS BUSINESS ISSUES
 ST. PAUL, Minn., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- A 12-member delegation of


senior-level officials from the Nordic Council will be in the Twin Cities March 12 - 13 for a series of forums on business and social issues.
 The Nordic Council, representing Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, is a 40-year-old organization similar to the European Community in that it has harmonized Nordic laws and policies and pooled economic, cultural and legal resources. It is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden.
 The council's visit to Minnesota will include presentations and meetings exploring health care, the environment and the global economy.
 Leading the group are Ilkka Suominen, president of the Nordic Council and speaker of the Finnish Parliament, and Icelandic Minister of Education, Culture and Research Olafur Einarsson.
 The delegation's visit includes a reception at the Governor's Office and a briefing on Minnesota's economy at the Minnesota Trade Office.
 George Crolick, executive director of the Minnesota Trade Office, said the trade office plans to showcase Minnesota's major industries for the group. "In 1990, Minnesota exported more than $125 million in manufactured goods to these five countries. Of that, nearly 73 percent was concentrated in the transportation equipment, industrial machinery and scientific instruments sectors."
 The Minnesota Trade Office, a division of the Minnesota Department of Trade and Economic Development, offers services for new-to-export companies and experienced exporters.
 The Scandinavian Center at Augsburg College, Minneapolis, is hosting the visit.
 CONTACT: Anette Peterson, 612-296-3037, or Kathy Stone, 612-296-2186, both of Minnesota Department of Trade and Economic Development.
