Deputy Minister Høglund talks on Norway’s Asia policies

H.E. Morten Høglund, Norway’s Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs stated that Norway needs to continue its institutional support to ASEAN countries, as we emphasise the need for a level playing field for trade under the auspices of the WTO,” said Mr Høglund in his opening remarks of the Norway-Asia Business Summit 2014. “Norwegian economic growth is dependent on Norwegian companies succeeding abroad, so we encourage foreign investment.” “I am impressed by the level of local knowledge held by Norwegian companies in Asia. This knowledge is of value to other companies and even the government, so as a community we need to define our priorities for investment.”
