At the Norway-UK Seafood Summit on Jan. 22. hosted by the Norwegian Seafood Council, representatives from both countries discussed Brexit, the "elephant in the room", as Ambassador of Norway to the United Kingdom H.E. Wegger Chr. Strommen, called it in his introduction speech.

Hoping to avoid any delay in seafood trade, the ambassador said Norway was ready to start negotiations as soon as the United Kingdom left the EU and was prepared to talk.

"There will come a time after Brexit," he added.
