On the 10th of February, IRRSA presented an online lecture via Zoom on the topic "115 years of Bulgarian-Norwegian diplomatic relations" with guest-lecturer Mr. Nikolay Gerov.
Mr. Gerov opened the lecture with brief information about Norway, presenting its history, and then explained the development of Bulgarian-Norwegian diplomatic relations from the Middle Ages to the present day. Many interesting topics were touched upon such as migration, child adoption, tourism, the cooperation between the two countries and the Norwegian Financial Mechanism.
