Embassy Newsletter April 2016
A highlight of this month was the visit of three Norwegian parliamentarians to Ulaanbaatar in order to attend the 9th Asia-Europe Parliamentary Partnership Meeting, a gathering of parliamentarians from 32 Asian and European countries. This is one of the events leading up to the 11th Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) that will be held in July.
Also in April, we have had several news from Oslo highlighting Norway’s international commitments to combat climate change and to support Syria’s neighbouring countries in their efforts of coping with refugee crisis.
Moreover, in Hong Kong the Skogul Gondul open video program, that introduces several Norwegian artists, will be presented at the Papay Gyro Nights Art Festival, which will be held from April 8 to May 8.
Finally, the Norwegian Centre for International Cooperation in Education (SIU) has issued calls for applications for funding in various programmes aimed at cooperation in higher education with countries outside the EU, including China.
