The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce which partners the Advance Business partner AS in Norway in the Norwegian Business Match Making Programme (BMMP) funded by the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation NORAD has finalised a delegation to visit Norway, during the last week of October.
The BMMP which has been in operation since 1994 has been instrumental in the considerable increase of exports to Norway over the last decade. The objective of the Programme is to establish sustainable and profitable joint ventures between Norwegian companies and counterparts in Sri Lanka. This is achieved through the development of business partnerships which foster transfer of technology, the exchange of management and business skills between the two countries.
The trade delegation to Norway has been an annual event. The industry sectors selected for participation this year are ceramic ornamental ware (Art Decoration International (Pvt) Ltd, specialised rubber products (Polymer Products Ltd), renewable energy (Sierra Power) fiber glass boats & accessories (North manufacturing), waste to energy management (Burns Environmental) and engineering and sewerage treatment systems (Access International). All the arrangements for the business meetings in Norway have been finalised by AB partners AS.
