In Singapore, the Norwegian Embassy has already put sustainable use of the oceans on the agenda:
"I am glad to announce that Singapore and Norway have decided to focus on reduction of marine litter in our joint training program for public officials this year. Maritime nations like ours need to invest in healthy oceans", says ambassador Tormod C. Endresen.
The white paper gives special priority to three areas: sustainable use and blue growth, clean and healthy oceans, and the role of the blue economy in development policy. A summary of the white paper (in English) is available here.
