No one will argue against that the Crown Prince and Princess may try out many new things when they fronts Norwegian interests abroad.
Friday concluded the Crown Prince couple 's visit to Vietnam , where they have seen and tasted much and visited the Norwegian aid projects , detonated cluster bombs and even learned to vaccinate fish. The latter program took place at the riverfront in Pharmaq in the Mekong Delta.
The day was set aside for official meetings , tour to the Reunification Palace and War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City and events with Norwegian industry.
The purpose of the official visit has included putting in place a free trade agreement between countries by 2015. One of the challenges has been to promote the message that Norway is primarily looking to purchase goods , not to sell and compete on the Vietnamese market . Norway imports already three times more than we export to Vietnam.
After this week's bilateral talks is the managing director Vibeke Hammer Madsen in Real satisfied :
- In 2013 we imported goods for 2.35 billion. With the FTA in place during 2014 , I think we will see more Vietnamese goods in Norwegian companies and Norwegian IT companies contribute with their knowledge so that Vietnam can go from paper to multiple digital processes , she said.
