On 22 April, Chargé d’Affairs a.i. Mr. Vegard Holmelid, had a meeting at the Embassy with representatives from the Norwegian engineering consultancy company Multiconsult. In the meeting, the many possibilities for closer Thai-Norwegian cooperation within the energy sector were discussed, as well as how the Embassy can contribute in this regard, reports the Norwegian Embassy in Bangkok.
Multiconsult is a company with roots going back to 1908. They have been operating in South East Asia for many years. Now, Multiconsult is steadily expanding its presence in the region. Recently Multiconsult opened their first office in Thailand. In Thailand, as generally in South East Asia, their work is mostly focused on projects within the renewable energy sector, as well as the oil and gas sector.
Mr. Vegard Holmelid underlined that the Embassy appreciates when Norwegian companies like Multiconsult are concentrating on Thailand. He made it clear that he was particularly happy that a company like Multiconsult, a centrepiece of Norway’s world class expertise on renewable energy, is now investing in Thailand. This is of great importance for the continuation of the strong bilateral relationship that has existed between Norway and Thailand for 111 years.
