On March 5th 2019, we received at our Secretariat a delegation from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs headed by Deputy Director Mrs. Annette Bull and H.E Ambassador Mr. Per Strand Stjasastad.

Both parties discussed the possible ways of deepening the cooperation between the Fund and Norwegian government in areas of mutual interest, as Norway remains high in the agenda of cooperation for WB region.
