The Government is committed to the oceans and wants Norway to take a leading international role in ocean activities. More than 200,000 Norwegians work in the petroleum, seafood and maritime industries, helping to generate almost NOK 500 billion in value annually
Sustainable management and use of the world’s oceans are crucial to our common future.
Every day hundreds of thousands of Norwegians go to work in the ocean industries, which together account for about 70 per cent of Norway’s export earnings.
The Government is committed to supporting ocean industries. In the years ahead, the oceans will be a major source of sustainable, lucrative employment.
