Sustainable Blue growth Forum


On February 27th 2018, Norwegian Prime Minister Solberg and French President Macron met in Paris, and expressed a clear interest of improving and facilitating increased cooperation between French and Norwegian enterprises.

France and Norway are both countries where Blue Growth has a high priority on the political agenda. Norway launched last year an ambitious Ocean Strategy Called "New growth, proud history” which wiil focus on three areas:

  • Sustainable use and value creation
  • Clean and healthy oceans
  • The blue economy

The French-Norwegian Blue Growth Forum 2019 will develop these three topics further, and should be able to contribute towards a stronger cooperation with a strategic partner like France.

The French Norwegian Chamber of Commerce is a private bilateral non-profit organization.

Through the celebration of its 100 years’ anniversary and by organizing this event, we are also convinced that Blue Growth will play a major role in our activity during the next century.

We would also like to take advantage of this event in order to develop the understanding and contacts between actors working with innovation, Tech transfer, value creation and climate issues in Norway and France and thus lay the foundation for business opportunities and industrial cooperation.
