Embassy Newsletter January 2017
The first month of 2017 has already passed and we are now on the other side of the holiday season. Two of the month’s most notable events were the Arctic Frontiers Conference in Tromsø during the last week of January, and the World Economic Forum in Davos. Both these events gave us some exciting news and developments we will no doubt hear more of in the coming months. In addition to Arctic Frontiers, the northern city of Tromsø has hosted several festivals this January. Notably the Tromsø International Film Festival known for its varied program and venues (some of the films are screened on great walls of snow outside!), and the Northern Lights Festival welcomed a great variety of artists performing everything from opera to jazz and symphony orchestra music that delighted citizens and tourists alike.
In this last winter month of February, we will see a busy time here at the embassy planning for our many spring activities. Innovation Norway will host a Tourism workshop at the embassy on 14 February, this is sure to be an interesting and productive event. Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks!
