BUSINESS— Telenor reaffirms Burma link with executive appointment

In a restructuring of its business executive, Norwegian telecommunications company Telenor have appointed former Norwegian ambassador to Burma, Katja Nordgaard, as head of their corporate affairs division. The move will strengthen the link between Telenor and Burma, where the company has pledged to invest US$1billion into telecommunications infrastructure. In 2013, Telenor won one of two highly sought-after licences to provide telecommunications services in Burma. Ms Nordgaard served as Norwegian Ambassador to Burma between 2010 and 2013.
