15 companies and organizations met with the Norwegian Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries in Kristiansand Monday.

“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,” says Hanna S. Atic, Political Advisor at the Ministry.
