Slovenia opens consulate in Norway

Slovenia has opened a consulate in Oslo which is to be led by honorary consul Knut Ore. The opening ceremony on Tuesday was attended by several distinguished guests, among them Foreign Ministry State Secretary Darja Bavdaž Kuret, her counterpart Tore Hattrem and Slovenian Ambassador to Norway Tone Kajzer, the Foreign Ministry said.


Bavdaž Kuret pointed out in her address that the opening coincided with the 25th anniversary of Slovenian independence. During this quarter of a century Norway has served as a role model of democracy, prosperity and social solidarity.




She expressed her conviction that the honorary consul will draw on his experience and connections to help deepen cooperation and find new opportunities in the relations between the two countries.


Knut Ore, who is active in business and above all in financial consulting, is Slovenia's first honorary consul in Norway.


Slovenia does not have an embassy in Norway and concurrent Ambassador Tone Kajzer is based in Copenhagen.


Norway closed its embassy in Slovenia in 2011. It now covers Slovenia from the embassy in Budapest.
