Business delegation to Australia

Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg arrived in Perth today, on his three-day official visit to Australia. The Prime Minister will be travelling with a delegation of some 40 representatives from the Norwegian business sector. From Perth, Mr Stoltenberg will continue to Canberra and Sydney.

“I am looking forward to my visit to Australia. Norway has established good contacts with Australia and the two countries cooperate closely in areas such as climate change, energy, global health and disarmament. Australia is also an attractive study destination for Norwegian students. One of the aims of the visit is to promote the Norwegian business sector in Australia, and I am pleased to see that so many Norwegian companies are taking part,” said Mr Stoltenberg.

 

Australia is an interesting market for Norwegian companies, a number of which are already represented in Australia, in areas such maritime offshore services, shipping and oil and gas, .

 

“The offshore market, for instance, is very interesting for Norwegian industry, partly because of the prospect of developments far from shore. Norwegian industry has developed significant expertise in this area,” said Mr Stoltenberg.

 

Mr Stoltenberg will participate at several events involving the Norwegian and Australian business sectors. He will also have political talks with Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard.
