Announcement from the EFTA Surveillance Authority


It is with great regret that the EFTA Surveillance Authority announces that its President, Mr. Hannes Hafstein has passed away. Mr. Hafstein was one of the founding fathers of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and was held in high esteem by all those who encountered him. Mr. Hafstein inspired great respect, particularly in his colleagues. His captivating personality carried strong conviction and a warm sense of humour. He served as a Member of the College of the Authority from 1997 and as President from 2004.

Mr. Hafstein died peacefully on Sunday afternoon following a brief illness. The Authority expresses its deepest sympathy to the Hafstein family in their sad loss.
