Periscope partner GCE NODE provides input to Norway’s new maritime white paper
Fifteen companies and organizations met with the Norwegian Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries in Kristiansand this week in order to give input to a new governmental white paper on the maritime industry.
“We are pleased to meet with industry representatives through a series of similar meetings all across the nation. We appreciate any input, as they will give us a better understanding of the industry,” commented Hanna S. Atic, Political Advisor at the Ministry.
Several companies emphasized the necessity for a home market for development of new technology, such as floating offshore wind.
The meeting was hosted by Maritime Forum South and GCE NODE.
“We welcome a new white paper on maritime politics in Norway. It is time for a broad approach to ocean-based industries,” concluded Anne Lene Dale, CEO of GCE NODE.
