The issue of climate change was the focus of talks today, when new Ambassador of Norway, Torbjorn Holthe, paid a courtesy call on Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Senator Maxine McClean.
The two officials discussed the upcoming high-level conference on climate change in Norway, being held at the end of May, and how important such an issue was for a small island such as Barbados.
Other areas discussed included regional integration, the global economic crisis, alternative energy, the upcoming Summit of the Americas, security issues and drug trafficking.
