On 17th July, Elin Gjedrem, Acting Consul General at the Norwegian Consulate General, and Ivar Moesman, Project Manager from Innovation Norway, each held an instructive presentation for 19 Norwegian students. The students attended the annual summer course “Introduction to Modern China” at the Nordic Centre in Shanghai and came from different Norwegian universities.
