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.
