“I hope to see many British and Norwegian businesses at Team Norway’s Energetic Future – Britain and Norway, in Newcastle on 26 October. Science and innovation underpin the economies of both the UK and Norway, and our partnership has resulted in some groundbreaking research and development, as well as new products and technologies. I hope that many businesses use this opportunity to explore the potential for new collaboration and building stronger partnerships. Newcastle and the surrounding region have much to offer Norwegian businesses, and many Norwegian companies are already contributing to the region’s economic growth together with long-time local partners.”
