In his opening speech, State Secretary Mr Kjell Erik Øie from the Norwegian Ministry of Children and Equality stated:
"It is necessary to establish an effective cross-sectoral co-operation and unite our efforts in creating a well-functioning system of assistance for children. Intervention should not only happen early, but also be correct, therefore we need to have effective tools at our disposal. In Norway the methods and principles of assistance are based on family work. At the same time we can also use the resources of the society."
