Introducing the Norwegian maritime industry to the Russian market
Russia and Norway have a long-lasting historical tradition based on human and commercial cooperation, particularly in the High North. The countries have common borders, share common ocean areas and fishery resources.
Russia and Norway have huge maritime industries and large fleets. The fleets consist of vessels like dry bulk, tank, container, MPP, passenger, service, fishery etc. The ownership is both private and governmental. Both countries have onshore industries and service systems supporting the fleet.
