In Jaffna, the Danish envoy expressed the need for the University of Jaffna to expand its faculties to include the fields of Law and Journalism, saying that the current disciplines available at the University do not meet the growing needs of the community.

He said that his government presented computers to Tamil media Organizations with a view to improving their performance.

The Ambassador said that he was very much interested in exploring the feasibility of windmill projects combined with solar energy.
