The MFA aspirants visited SKREI and Skrei Research Center (SRC) on 4 September.

Here they got an insight into the project, the history, present and future of the place, the fisheries and the coastal culture. It is an important part of the education of our next generation of foreign delegates to learn about what the nation is built on and what it can offer the world at large.
