NICCI members, partners and associates in the Norway-India business community, you are all painfully aware of the catastrophic Covid-19 situation in India now.
We want to express our deepest concern about the situation. It is heartbreaking to see the suffering of family, friends, colleagues and partners.
The situation is critical and calls for immediate action! We encourage all of you to do whatever you can to help.
A lot of good initiatives are already launched by enterprises, NGO´s and individuals. The Norwegian government was quick to release its initial support.
What will NICCI do?
Right now, we are discussing with key stakeholders on how to utilize the full power of the Norway-India business community, assisting in the critical situation in India.
We believe we can play a role in making members and our network join forces in one initiative that is currently on the runway. Together with Team Norway, the enterprises and individuals, we will utilize our full resources and channels to drive engagement to this and other efforts.
NICCI will also continue to facilitate situation-updates and knowledge sharing sessions for companies. We stand in solidarity with India and want to contribute to make a difference.
