The Norwegian Embassy held an event for the Norwegian Constitution Day and a celebration for the 75th Anniversary of the Diplomatic Relations of Norway with the Philippines last May 16, 2023, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in BGC. Guests started coming in and they were all very eager to look at the booths outside of the main event.  As one of the event’s partners, NTC was able to showcase its display.
