An eight-member high powered business delegation dealing with
fisheries and the boat industry from Norway will be visiting Colombo
this month to establish potential business contacts with the business
community in Sri Lanka.
To facilitate companies to interact with the delegates, the Sri
Lanka-Norway Matchmaking Program of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce will
be organizing a Matchmaking Event on February 23 2011 at the Cinnamon
The delegates are mainly dealing in designing of catamaran fishing
vessels, discharge systems for deliveries for fish meal and fish meal
plants, fish farm cages, anchor and mooring systems, fish farming pumps,
long line equipment, supply of boats, deck machinery for oil and gas,
marine and fishing industries and Transfer of technology for aquaculture
The fishing industry is the second largest export sector in Norway
after oil and gas.
The industry includes the traditional fishing, as well as fish
farming and processing of all kinds of seafood at onshore facilities.
Due to various factors, such as new technology and equipment,
restructuring of the sector and international competition etc the
Norwegian fishing industry has improved tremendously during past the few
The main reason for this is that Norway controls some of the world's
richest fishing grounds.
