More businesses and more jobs to the region. That is the goal for Business Region Kristiansand.

“Business Region Kristiansand is established to attract and retain expertise in our region. Our goal is to attract investors and new businesses in order to grow the total number of businesses and jobs”, says Harald Furre, Mayor of Kristiansand.

He launched KRSBiz at an event onboard the 90-year-old Norwegian Tall Ship “Sørlandet” in Arendal Thursday. More than 100 guests participated.

Geir A. Haugum, newly appointed Head of Economic Development in Kristiansand, will head Business Region Kristiansand.
