The Summit’s Organising Committee in Philippines Norway Business Council has in the past week conducted a thorough evaluation and they have unanimously agreed to cancel the event due to security concerns. In the latter months a gradual deterioration of the security situation in the Philippines has been seen. A number of countries, such as the United States and the United Kingdom, have issued new travel advices and warnings for Central Philippines. The Organising Committee has concluded that it cannot take the responsibility for organising Norway-Asia Business Summit in the Philippines autumn 2017.
While the summit in Cebu, the Philippines, 21-23 November 2017 has been canceled, the regional organising committee headed by Norwegian Business Association (Singapore) is looking into finding an alternate host for Norway-Asia Business Summit 2017.
