Ladies and gentlemen, Thank you for the introduction and thank you for inviting me to be here today. State Secretary Marianne Hagen at the mini seminar in Helsinki. Finland and Norway Norwegians are fond of Finland and we have always felt a great affinity with the Finnish people. We have a lot in common. We share the same values and have a similar mentality in many ways.
