Successful Farewell Luncheon honoring Ambassador Moreira Lima

On February 7th 40 members of BNCC and specially invited guests honored Ambassador Moreira Lima at a luncheon at Shippingklubben. The ambassador will soon be leaving Norway after 4 years with Hungary as his next posting. As the BNCC President Terje Staalstrøm said in his speech it might have been oil or it might have been the ambassador’s excellent work which have resulted in the strong growth in the relationship between the two countries these last 4 years. As a token of our appreciation of his enthusiasm for Norway, the ambassador was given a hand-blown crystal serving tray to remind him of the years spent here.

On the occasion the ambassador gave an overview of the status of the Brazilian economy and the relationship with Norway.
