Srinagar, May 09: Nils Ragnar Kamsvag, Ambassador of Norway to India, called on Governor N. N. Vohra at the Raj Bhavan here today.
Kamsvag discussed with the Governor issues relating to the implementation in J&K of the several programmes, under the Norway-India Partnership Initiative 2013-17.
Recalling his experiences as the founder Co-Chairman of the Indo-European Union Round Table (2001-08), the Governor complimented the Ambassador for his country’s sustained support to Human Development Programmes, particularly in the arena of Health, from which India had benefitted immensely through aid under NORAD.
The Governor invited the Ambassador to pay a longer visit to the State and view the fruitful possibilities which exist for Norwegian investors to launch mutually beneficial projects in J&K. He also referred to the high potential of Indo-Norwegian collaboration in the education sector and fostering of joint research programmes in identified fields. (KNS)
