 Scandinavia Pavilion - Norway

Man and water is the theme chosen by Norway for its display in the Scandinavian pavilion.

Salt waters have served this nation of seafarers since the first Norseman landed in North America nearly 1,000 years ago; they still serve Norway's merchant marine, the third largest in the world.

Fresh water from Norway's mountains, tamed to produce electricity provides energy for Norway's expanding industries. With the highest electricity orduction per capita in the world, Norway also has one of the highest living standards en Europe.

As snow, water provides the basis for skiing, invented by Norwegians as a means of communications - and today a source of recreation and joy throughout the world.

Man cannot live in this world without water: this is particularly true of Norway.
