The Export Strategy Council

The Norwegian government has established a new agency, the Export Strategy Council. The agency will connect the Norwegian business community and the export-oriented national policy instruments with the aim to identify some larger strategic export initiatives and develop these into targeted projects to accelerate value-creating exports.

Through collaborative work in jointly deciding, financing and implementing new initiatives, both private and public stakeholders will commit to projects in order to release an additional potential for increased exports. A main task will be to carry out strategic analysis of the export potential in Norwegian business and industry and identify international market potential for Norwegian solutions.
