Norway, Singapore and China Sign MOU on Maritime

The MoU was signed on August 28 between Chargé d’Affaires of the Royal Norwegian Embassy Lise Nordgaard, representative of  the Ministry of Trade and Industry of the Kingdom of Norway, the Minister for Transport and Second Minister for Foreign Affairs of Singapore Raymond Lim and Chinese Minister for Communications Li Shenglin.
The MOU will foster greater cooperation in the area of maritime and shipping related research, development and training for the three countries. It includes cooperative frameworks for joint projects of mutual interest and exchange programs, and will be an important platform for Norway to further develop and deploy technologies for the maritime field with key partners such as China and Singapore.
Norway and Singapore have been collaborating on maritime research projects since 2000. Earlier this year, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and the Research Council of Norway (RCN) extended their MOU on Maritime Research and Development for another three years. This facilitates research and development projects on maritime education and training, offshore engineering and maritime infocomm technology. By extending these collaborative arrangements to China, the tripartite MOU enhances knowledge exchange between the three countries.
