Briefing notes

High Commissioner visits Nordic countries

6 December 2005

The High Commissioner António Guterres is in Copenhagen today, at the start of a four-day visit to Denmark, Norway, Finland and Sweden. During his visit, Mr. Guterres will meet with senior government officials, parliamentarians, NGOs and others.

Denmark, Norway, Finland and Sweden are key strategic partners in our work for refugees around the world. The four countries are also among the top ten per capita donors to UNHCR, contributing a total of nearly US$ 200 million to UNHCR's programmes so far this year (Sweden: US$ 77.6 million, Norway: US$ 55.7 million, Denmark: US$ 44.2 million, Finland: US$ 15.8 million).
