19 August 2019

The Norwegian Embassy this summer said farewell to the Deputy Head of Mission Kristian Svanes, who has gone back to Norway, taking up a new position at the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. NCCL thanks Kristian Svanes for cooperation and welcomes his successor Jannicke Bain to Riga!

Jannicke Bain has just arrived in Latvia and is looking forward to participate in the Norwegian Embassy team. She holds a law degree from the University of Oslo and has served in Norwegian missions in Central-America, Asia and Europe, the last stop in Belgrade. She sees her new challenge to continue the work of the Embassy in promoting commercial cooperation between Latvia and Norway, may be even to increase it? In addition, cultural interchange and other ways of enhancing the ties in high on the agenda. "Riga is a city which is easy to like, I am only waiting for the opportunity to travel further in Latvia!" says Ms Bain.
