The Embassy of Norway is proud to announce that a delegation of ten Danish and two Norwegian companies are coming to visit Bangladesh in the period 9th-13th of September 2012.The delegation is a “joint venture”, arranged in cooperation with our friends at the Royal Danish Embassy making it a shared Nordic effort.
“We are proud to be able to bring this delegation of Danish and Norwegian companies to Bangladesh. The Embassy of Denmark has been active in Bangladeshi agriculture since the very beginning in 1971, and we are inviting Danish and Norwegian companies to see the impressive progress Bangladesh has made in this area. Hopefully, this delegation will result in many new business partnerships, which will further strengthen the relationship between our countries”, says the Danish Ambassador to Bangladesh, Mr. Svend Olling.
The objective of the 2012 delegation is to introduce the Danish and Norwegian companies to relevant local companies in order to explore possibilities for setting up long-term partnerships where Nordic knowledge and investments will be combined with local expertise and manpower skills.
The Norwegian Ambassador, Ms. Ragne Birte Lund, further explains: “In 2010 Norway launched a Business- Matchmaking programme at the Embassy in Dhaka. The purpose of the programme is to encourage long term partnerships between Norwegian and Bangladeshi companies. We believe there is strong potential for cooperation in the aquaculture and fisheries sector where Norwegian companies represent the state of the art and we are hopeful that this visit will lead to fruitful partnerships”.
The two Embassies are arranging meetings between the delegation companies and potential local partners. Bangladeshi companies interested in meeting the Danish and Norwegian companies can visit the homepage of the Danish Embassy, www.bangladesh.um.dk in order to fill in a company profile.
