14/01/2011 - The newly appointed Norwegian Ambassador in Madrid, Torgeir Larsen, along with the Deputy Chief of the Embassy, Anders Eide enjoyed a flying visit to Gran Canaria this week to meet the local Norwegian ex-pat community.
The Norwegian officials chose Anfi del Marâ€™s Gran Anfi Club Hotel in ArguineguÃn for their short but intense two day stay in Gran Canaria.
Accompanied by the Consul General of Norway in Las Palmas, Ms. Gry Rustad, the group visited the Norwegian School and Norwegian Church, both located in Arguineguin which is recognised as having the highest concentration of Norwegian expatriates in Gran Canaria.
Despite his busy schedule, Mr Larsen, who has had a long and interesting career as a navigation officer, journalist and political advisor before becoming Ambassador, also held a short meeting with the Mayor of Mogan, Francisco Gonzalez and Thomas Lorenzo the councillor for Tourism, Beaches and Police.
