We would like to thank the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries of Norway, as well as the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Royal Embassy in Kyiv and Egersund Seafood for supporting this event.
NUCC organizes networking events in both Ukraine and Norway and brings businesses together for a better future. This time our Networking Forum was arranged in connection with the first political visit of the Minister of Trade and Industry of Norway, Mr. Torbjørn Røe Isaksen, to Ukraine.
The event became a platform for discussion on the current cooperation between Norway and Ukraine, recent business reforms and opportunities within investment and trade between the two countries. We have invited relevant speakers and representatives of both Norwegian and Ukrainian governments, as well as businesses, who shared their professional knowledge and competence on the topic of the event.

Horpestad, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Norway to Ukraine, Mr. Torbjørn Røe Isaksen, Minister of Trade and Industry of Norway, Mr. Mykhailo Titarchuk, Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine, for inspiring speeches and putting bilateral cooperation in perspective.
We were fortunate to have panelists from different areas, such as IT, Energy and Agriculture, together with the government representatives. We are grateful to Magnus Johansen, Business Development Manager in Ukraine at Scatec Solar, Arne Mjøs, Founder and CEO of Itera and Svitlana Totska, Director of the Strategy and Business Development in Svarog West Group, as well as Andriy Demchuk, Director of the Department of Involvement of Investments and Innovations of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine, for their participation in the panel discussion and sharing their expertise on the topic of investment and trade opportunities. Special thanks to Mr. Brian Bonner, Chief Editor at Kyiv Post and Member of the Media Development Foundation supervisory board, for leading the discussion.
We would also like to thank the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to the Kingdom of Norway, Viacheslav Yatsiuk, for the help with the event and support during the evening. We truly appreciate your input!
