And that’s why Telenor comes to these types of platforms, we love to play a part in forums where we can come together and, particularly, in times of great uncertainty it is really important that we try to solve problems together… Why this forum exists, it’s exactly about .. putting different people together, coming together, discussing across industries, across governments and private sector to find solutions and we think that’s going to be even more important in the future."

"It’s very, very important for us to meet and for us to collaborate, discuss and we don’t need to reinvent the wheel, , we can learn from each of other.

So I think that’s a very important thing which we realised at the IIC meeting."
