Telenor said a meeting of board members asserted their confidence in president and CEO Sigve Brekke, saying he is the right person to lead the implementation of a new strategy for the period up to 2020. This follows media references to his period as Head of Asia, it said, after the firm responded to press questions about compliance in Thailand, Bangladesh and a third, unspecified country. The company said it would be holding a press conference at noon on 14 December.
