BPI annual meeting is postponed

Apr 15, 2010


Barents Press annual meeting in Bodø must be cancelled this weekend. This is of course due to the dust-cloud over most of Scandinavia and northwestern Russia. The Norwegian minister of transport just said that there will be no air traffic in Norway tomorrow Friday. That means that most of our guests and delegates will not be able to reach Bodø.

We very much regret the situation, and we have no other choice than to postpone the conference. We have informed national delegations of this decision. We will inform the Norwegian guests.
Robert will call us for a telephone conference for the BPI board tomorrow Friday (preferably in the afternoon) so that we can discuss new dates for the conference. The hotel here in Bodø have given us two alternative dates: May 21.-23. and June 11.-13. We have to decide on that preferably tomorrow or as soon as possible.

Kindly,
Arne Egil, BP Norway chairman
