Prime Minister summarizes state of the nation

Prime Minister Erna Solberg held an annual press conference at her residence in Parkveien in Oslo on Wednesday, where she summarized the past year and the state of the nation.

The Parliament's summer holiday is close, and the Prime Minister took the opportunity to summarize the past six months at a press conference at her residence on Wednesday.

The past few months the government has battled with several sensitive issues, including family doctors' option to reserve themselves from having to refer a woman to have an abortion, as well as Dalai Lama's visit to Norway. However, Solberg focused on the issues the government is currently working on, including education, health care and public transportation.

"I think we are well on our way towards new ideas and better solutons," Solberg said. We ran for the election because we think Norway is a wonderful country to live in, with a good economic development, but we know that this is not a guarantee for the future. The society we have today will not necessarily be the one we have in 20 years."
