There was a friendly exchange of views on opportunities around business for the region with reference made by the Chamber CEO to Norway’s international reputation as a leader in off shore wind energy.

“It was fantastic to welcome Ms Skåre and Ms Lyngstad here to Tralee. The recent signing of on MOU between Shannon Foynes Port and Norwegian Offshore Wind was something we talked out, in terms of the impact that will have directly into West Limerick as well as the wider area including North Kerry,” said Colette O’Connor.

The Ambassador and Deputy Head of Mission are very much looking forward to spending the next few days here in the Kingdom and will be meeting a number of key figures across the county.
