News of Norway
The Nordic Page, as Norway’s only printed English news publication, is more than an ordinary magazine; it is a leading resource that helps English speakers to be able to understand the region through its dynamic web and mobile edition at www.tnp.no. We invite you to experience this innovative, informative and reliable news resource for Norway in the English Language.
Why English: What Is the Background of This Project?
Beyond the common sense aspect, that most Scandinavians speak English well, the increasing multiculturalism in Norway boosts English language usage more than ever. An increasing proportion of the international community living in the country also communicate in English. As more people are continuously attracted by the region’s educational and business facilities, this English speaking community is growing rapidly.

8.1 MILLION VISITORS

NORWAY IS A FOCUS OF THE WORLD
Additionally, Norway enjoys a righteous worldwide reputation in its environmental and humanitarian activities, close cooperation with other countries in the High North, the Nordic region and Europe, and it is also continually broadening its geographical perspective, in the direction of new economies. This issue has now attracted widespread attention of the curious international readers to Norway.
