Ms Jensen mentions scrapping the Ethics Committee in her commentary published in Dagens Næringsliv. Their role is to recommend which companies the SWF should invest in.
"Today's three-way method organising the work between the Ministry of Finance, the Norwegian Central Bank, and the Ethics Committee is not optimal," she wrote.
"We propose that the Central Bank should be allocated responsibility for both the exercising of ownership and the exclusion mechanism, whilst deciding the Central Bank's mandate and exclusion criteria remains a political decision," added Minister Jensen. (©NTB)
