The talks will be conducted while attending the 20th anniversary of the Barents region, Tuesday.

“I think it certainly is a topic to be discussed at the meeting, and how we can help make the movement of labour in this area easier. We’ll then discuss the proposals that arrive on the [talks] table,” the Prime Minister told NRK.

Other politicians attending tomorrow’s anniversary in Finnmark County’s Kirkenes are Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, the other four Nordic Countries’ Prime Ministers, and Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt.

Employers in Finnmark find it difficult to fill positions. They are increasingly looking to southern Europe as it is currently hard for Russians to gain permits to work in Norway.
