Norway and Turkey signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the energy sector, paving the way for closer cooperation between the two countries. 
  
“The talks between the Norwegian and Turkish government ministers were good. Both sides expressed a keen interest in strengthening cooperation between the countries in the energy sector,” says Øistein Andresen, executive vice president of Statkraft.

Our cooperation is broad in scope, and designed to promote Turkish and Norwegian actors’ common interests. The hydropower sector is a case in point.
