Norwegian Minister launches seafood campaign in France

[28/05/04] Erna Solberg, Minister for Local Government and Regional Development of Norway - who was this week in Strasbourg for the annual session of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities - used this opportunity to launch a Norwegian seafood campaign in French restaurants and supermarkets.

''Food as such, and seafood in particular, is part of our common cultural heritage. This campaign is a chance to match the great culinary tradition of France with the excellent natural produce of Norway'', said the Minister at the kick-off event organised by the Norwegian Seafood Export Council in the Alsatian Restaurant du Tigre, in Stutzheim, near Strasbourg. Norway is currently chairing the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers.
