It is known that convex functions with values in an ordered Banach space Y, whose positive cone Y+ is normal, have the same continuity properties as real-valued convex functions. We show that normality of Y+ is not only sufficient, but also necessary for this.

Keywords: Convex operator, vector-valued convex function, ordered normal linear space, normal cone.
