Yesterday NME had a meeting with the Norwegian Laber Party.

We met yesterday with Terje Aasland, parliament member from the Norwegian Labour Party. We spent close to an hour with him discussion industry issues. We emphasized the importance of our partners with around 20.000 employees and value creation of about 60 billion NOK. We stressed the value governmental support for NME would be in helping Norwegian companies in rural Norway reaching out to important export markets. Mr. Aasland had great understanding for our views and we will keep talking with him and the Labour Party.
