KONGSBERG sponsors Expo 2010 Shanghai
KONGSBERG is one of five main sponsors of the Norwegian Pavilion at the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai, China.
“This is a unique opportunity for KONGSBERG to be present and build important relations in China,“ says CEO Walter Qvam, who will be visiting Shanghai in the end of May together with a large delegation of Norwegian Ministers and business leaders.
KONGSBERG's main focus in China is within the maritime segment of the company, especially shipbuilding.
This six-month long expo, from 1 May to 31 October, is the largest ever and is expecting more than 70 million visitors. The overall theme of Expo 2010 is “Better City. Better Life”, while the Norwegian version is “Norway. Powered by Nature”.
