Video Transcript

To do it without a government support would be very, very difficult; we would never have been where we are today here in Iceland if it wouldn't have the positive attitude of the government. And I would not, you know- everywhere you see those steps being taken. Like in Germany they have a very, very strong government backing, Japan—very, very strong backing. That's why these hubs are popping up in those countries. It's Iceland, it's Germany, it's Japan. There's beginning activity in Norway now and that's because they have very strong government support and you need that verbally, economically and incentives.
