|The administrative leader of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs|
The Permanent under-secretary of state (Norwegian: utenriksråd) is the administrative administrative officer of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Several of them have attended Bilderberg meetings at some points in their career.
The management of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is divided into a political and an administrative management. The political leadership, the Foreign Minister, changes in elections, while the administrative leadership is basically independent of a change of government. The Permanent under-secretary of state, together with two assistant under-secretaries, heads the ministry at official level. The position as Assistant under-secretary of state was previously also referred to as Special Council.
The first Permanent under-secretary of state took office in 1922.
