The Department for International Trade (DIT) in the UK and Norway are delighted to invite businesses from across the Northern Powerhouse to express their interest in a virtual trade mission to explore their opportunities in the Norwegian energy sector. The virtual mission programme is precursor to a physical mission, which is due to take place mid-summer*.
About the Norwegian market
The North of England and Norway have a long-standing relationship and excellent business relations with many Norwegian companies that are operational in the region, such as Equinor, Aker, and DNV.
