The Royal Norwegian Embassy is holding a Policy Brief on Thursday 5 December at 5 pm:

Asia’s rapid economic growth is a much debated phenomenon. Asia’s economic rise does however take place in a political environment that entails certain risk factors. At the Embassy, these factors are among the trends they try to comprehend, because the long term stability of Asia has become of vital importance to Norwegian interests.

This Policy Brief session is a first –  and an attempt to share some of their best contacts who will be able to shed light on trends that will shape South East Asia’s politics and economy. There will also be a briefing by the Ministry of Manpower on new policies on foreign labour in Singapore.

The Policy Brief will be held at Goodwood Park Hotel, Tudor Ballroom. If you are interested to join, kindly contact Ms Ellen Skarsgård at elsk@mfa.no by 30 November.
