- In a globalized world where protectionism seems to be stronger, the embassies are increasingly important. When we see an opportunity, we need to work as a team. And we experience that ambassadors are available for us. I think Norway has an advantage because of the openness between the industry and the government, said CEO Walter Qvam during his speech.
Walter Qvam continued on how KONGSBERG works as an industrial locomotive, paving the way for a large number of sub-suppliers.
Foreign Affairs Department Sten Anders Berge, thanked for the presentation.
- Kongsberg is always there for us and we are always there for you, pointed Berge.
