The Danish maritime industry is working on maintaining a strong relationship with its closest neighbours.

With Nor-Shipping 2017 taking place in Norway on 30 May until 2 June, the Daish Marine Group is in charge of a Danish pavilion at the show once again.

There is a strong foundation for friendship and strong business ties between the two Nordic neighbours who both rank in the global top 10 of shipowning nations.

Mark Lerche, head of the Danish Marine Group, said: “Norway is one of the main markets for Denmark’s maritime equipment and service suppliers. Norwegian shipowners and shipyards value high-end quality solutions, products and services, which makes for a perfect match with Danish suppliers.”

He added: “In the international shipping and shipbuilding industry we are known for delivering energy efficient operating profiles with a focus on technology development and cooperation.”

Denmark and Norway cooperated on a Scandinavian visit to the Indonesian ministries of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries late last year, Mr Lerche believes this shows the attitude of cooperation and dialogue the two countries have which creates better solutions for both parties.

“Once again we are very happy to welcome Denmark to Nor-Shipping. They are consistently among our largest collective exhibitors, and this reflects the strong ties and common interests that the two maritime countries have,” said Per Martin Tanggaard, Nor-Shipping exhibition director.

Denmark will also reach out to their Finnish neighbours at Nor-Shipping, with a match-making event between the two countries taking place during the second day at the Pavilion of Denmark lounge.
