* a green industrial package of NOK 1.2 billion, including an investment in hydrogen under the auspices of Statkraft
Full-time, permanent positions

She believes the long-term unemployed will need more help to get back to work.
“As a community, we must take responsibility for building that bridge back to the workforce. It is not something that will happen by itself,” she stated.
