Yesterday’s kick off arranged by Maritimt Forum addressed the issue ‘How can the business region of Bergen take a globally leading position within maritime and marine industry’. Grieg Group was represented both in the panel debate and as one of four profiled companies from Bergen.
– The shipping industry in Bergen has maybe always had kind of a “undercover” reputation, says Eli Vassenden in the promo film made for the occasion (watch below). Vassenden, COO Ship Management of Grieg Star and also the President of the Norwegian Shipowners Association in Western Norway, was one of the panelists.
The meeting gathered high profile politicians and business leaders from the whole country to discuss and encourage to increased collaboration across business sectors and disciplines.
– This is an important initiative for increased collaboration, innovative thining and sustainable growth within the ‘blue’ businesses in Bergen, says Elna-Kathrine Grieg who attended the meeting.
