Building links to deliver energy security and prosperity

The UK and Norway have worked in partnership for many decades to create a strong North Sea oil and gas sector, which continues to provide many thousands of jobs and shared infrastructure that delivers safe and secure energy supplies. We now warmly welcome a new link: the North Sea Network (NSN) electricity interconnector, which moves ahead with the final investment decision announced by the National Grid and Statnett.

Child mortality must be further reduced

"Since 2000, the Vaccine Alliance Gavi has helped to vaccinate 500 million children and prevent six million deaths. Despite this, 1.5 million children are still dying every year from diseases that could easily be prevented. We must therefore intensify our efforts so that even more children are vaccinated and more children survive preventable diseases," said Prime Minister Erna Solberg at Gavi’s pledging conference in Berlin today.

Enhancing financing for global education

Norway and the World Bank have launched Results in Education for All Children (REACH) – a new trust fund to boost financing for education in low-income countries. Education is an important way out of poverty, and good quality education services need to be available in all countries. With this in view, it is important that financing is more closely linked to results. The new trust fund was launched by World Bank President Jim Kim and Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg at the World Economic Forum in Davos today.
