'What a perfect event CPN had!' This was the common reaction from all participants including Norwegians, after the 10-year anniversary party, i.e. 'Bridging People and Businesses' held on at Telenor Expo, 21st Nov.

In the end, the song 'A Hymn to my motherland' reached the high moment of the evening, all participants stood up and joined the singing with a proud voice………

The third party program attracted people's eyes, i.e. fashion show. They showed evening dresses and Chinese Qipao in a modern style. This tells that CPN members can do more than work. H. E.
