Summer greeting from the Consul General Kristin Iglum

Many might have already started their summer vacation, others might still be working and staying through the humid plum season in Shanghai. If you have finalized a thesis, past exams, delivered a project or made other achievements, I hope that everyone can find time to relax in July and August. The consulate wish all Norwegians and friends of Norway a great summer!
