‘Norway will continue to be a stable and reliable supplier of energy and seeks to maintain a constructive and close relationship with the UK in this area. I am very pleased that Norway and the UK have now agreed to establish a forward-looking Green Industrial Partnership to promote the green transition and further strengthen economic cooperation between our two countries,’ Mr Støre said.

The announcement was made when Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre and UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak met in Gotland on 13 October in connection with the Joint Expeditionary Force summit.

Value creation and green transition

The present Norwegian Government has worked to establish a number of green industrial partnerships with, for example, the other Nordic countries, Germany, the EU and the US. The aim is to promote value creation and the green transition by securing access for Norwegian companies to markets, value chains, investments, and research, innovation and technology cooperation through targeted efforts towards selected markets.

The industrial partnerships vary in scope and focus, reflecting the wide variation in Norway’s existing cooperation with these countries and regions, and diverging industrial interests.
