On November 8, the American-Danish Young Professionals and Study Abroad in Scandinavia (DIS) invited American university students to a pre-departure reception at the Embassy.
The reception was held for students who are going to Denmark for a semester in the spring 2020. It was an excellent opportunity for the students to meet each other and ask questions about Denmark.
The event was a great success with speeches from representatives of the Embassy, ADYP and DIS, as well as alumni from DIS who entertained with fun facts about Denmark and what to expect during their exchange program.
The Norwegian-American Chamber of Commerce, Mid-Atlantic Chapter (NACC-MA), The Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce DC, and the American-Danish Business Council (ADBC) hosted an afternoon visit to the Royal Norwegian Embassy on March 7. The event centred on trade policy, and the Minister Counselor of Economic Affairs, Ms. Kristin Hansen and Counselor for Trade and Industrial Affairs, Mr. Pål Somdalen made a presentation on the Norwegian perspective on trade policy. The Councellor gave insights on how the Norwegian government works with the WTO, EU and other international organizations on trade.
After the event at the Royal Norwegian Embassy, the participants from the young professionals network had an after hour drink at a local bar. All in all a great evening for socializing, exchanging ideas, share common interests and grow professionally.
