"Norwegian shipping companies and the maritime industry are a key part of the solution to the opportunities and challenges ahead. Shipping represents a very important part of Norwegian business life that creates jobs and great values throughout the coast, while operating in tough global competition", Solberg says.
“The shipping companies make up a strong driving force in this cluster. In the years to come, the resources in the ocean will be a key contribution to addressing some of the major challenges in the world related to energy, food production and transportation of goods in an environmentally friendly way. The framework conditions for the industry will be crucial to ensure good and healthy competitive power”.
Harald Solberg was from 2014 to 2016 director of national and international politics and deputy CEO of NSA, and for the past year he has been at the Royal Secretariat at the Royal House of Norway.
