EXPLORE NEW OPPORTUNITIES AT THE NORWAY-ASIA BUSINESS SUMMIT 2019

Set your sails to Shanghai to attend the upcoming Norway-Asia Business Summit 2019, taking place 31 October to 2 November.

Norway Asia Business Summit is the most important meeting arena between Norwegian and Asian business leaders. The 2019 summit in Shanghai will bring together the frontier companies in maritime, energy and other ocean-based industries for a valuable encounter in one of the world’s most vibrant cities.

The maritime, energy and other ocean-based industries will be vital in meeting many of today’s global challenges. By 2050, the world population is expected to surpass 9 billion. A rapidly growing population means increased demand for food, energy, transport, and minerals. At the same time, the oceans are already under significant pressure as a result of climate change, overfishing, and pollution. Driven by the need to prevent climate devastation, the global energy system is undergoing a rapid transition. The urgency for action is nowhere more apparent than in Asia, home to 60 percent of the world’s population. Innovation and diffusion of new technologies are indispensable for sustainable economic growth.

Business leaders from both Norway and Asia will present what they do in these areas, and discuss how collaboration can accelerate the energy transition and contribute to a healthier ocean environment.

We look forward to hosting some of the most important Norwegian and Asian decision-makers from leading maritime, energy and ocean clusters.

The Norwegian Minister of Trade and Industry H.E. Torbjørn Røe Isaksen and the Vice Minister of Petroleum and Energy H.E. Rikard Gaarder Knutsen have confirmed participation.

We have several prominent business leaders speaking at NABS 2019: Have a look at the impressive list of speakers.We will announce new speakers in the upcoming days/weeks.
