The Minister came with news of a new building
Minister Trond Giske (left) congratulated Director General Erik Fossum, who is soon to retire, on the decision to build a new register building.
'I would like to congratulate the Brønnøysund Register Centre and all the staff. The quality, deliveries and soundness of the organisation are the most important reasons for the government's decision to build a new building,' said the Minister of Trade and Industry.
'The Brønnøysund Register Centre and its location have been a great success. You are a good example of how it is possible to base important government agencies outside the Oslo region, and how it is possible to find qualified, stable and capable staff to run an extensive and important service in more outlying regions,' said Giske.
The new register building will cost around NOK 1 billion. NOK 20 million has been allocated to the planning process, in which it will be decided where the new building will be situated, among other things. At the end of 2012, Statsbygg took over ownership of the building project, in close collaboration with the Brønnøysund Register Centre and Brønnøy municipality.
