Context Vol. IX: Ambitions for Norway and Europe in uncertain times

We are in the middle of a defining time. We are coming out of a pandemic, there is war in our neighborhood, the global economy is uncertain, there is high inflation, an energy crisis and several markets are heading towards a recession.

All of this magnifies the biggest challenge of our time in the Norwegian economy: Building a sustainable and green future for Norway is important – not only for the climate – but for the economic stability of the country as a whole.

The backdrop is dramatic. But in uncertain times, there are also opportunities for Norway and Europe.

Thommessen joined forces with McKinsey & Company and Morgan Stanley for this year's digital Context Vol. IX - a webinar about raising our ambitions for ourselves and our neighboring countries, even in a time of crisis and increasing uncertainty.

The recording will be available until 15 December.
