Sri Lanka and Norway have enjoyed a longstanding relationship for more than 60 years.
Sri Lanka has recently demonstrated its commitment to democratic transition and is welcoming international investments, which could further strengthen the economy.
Sri Lanka is now a middle-income country and this gives the opportunity to look for more business cooperation between two countries. Both Sri Lanka and Norway are countries with a long cost line and hence the potential for sharing ideas and business opportunities.
Norway has a Constitution, which was adopted on 17 May 1814. As of 2016, the Prime Minister of Norway is Erna Solberg, of the Conservative Party.
Unlike their counterparts in the rest of Europe, Norwegian Prime Ministers do not have the option of advising the King to dissolve the Storting and call a snap election. (Colombo Gazette)
