Nordek (for Nordiskt ekonomiskt gemenskap in Swedish or Nordøk for Nordisk økonomi in Danish and Norwegian) was the name of a planned organisation for Nordic economic cooperation similar to the European Economic Community EEC, based on a proposal in 1968 by Danish Prime Minister Hilmar Baunsgaard. A treaty was negotiated to establish the new organisation, to be headquartered in Malmö, Sweden. Ultimately it was the case that Finland did not ratify the treaty due to its relationship with the Soviet Union. Then Denmark joined EEC and Sweden, Norway, Iceland could not ratify the new treaty.
