Industry Minister Torbjørn Røe Isaksen (H) and Fisheries Minister Harald Tom Nesvik (Frp) travel to China this week to discuss trade with Chinese authorities.
Røe Isaksen will meet Deputy Minister Wang Shouwen in the Chinese Ministry of Commerce, and will participate at the Norway-Asia Business Summit in Shanghai, which is organized by Norwegian business and industry.
– “China is one of Norway’s most important trading partners in Asia. With its 1.4 billion inhabitants, the country is an important market for Norwegian companies,” he said in a statement.
Fisheries and Seafood Minister Harald Tom Nesvik will attend one of the world’s largest seafood trade fairs, China Fisheries & Seafood Expo, with Chinese Deputy Agriculture Minister Yu Kangzhen hosting.
Nesvik will also meet Deputy Minister Zhang Jiwen in the Chinese customs administration. The theme of this meeting is the development of bilateral seafood trade between China and Norway.
When the Chinese Customs Minister visited Norway in May, the Minister of Fisheries signed a salmon agreement and an agreement on trade in fishmeal and oil that is part of feed production with the Chinese minister.
