SCOTTISH Secretary David Mundell is visiting the headquarters of Marine Harvest in Bergen today as part of a trip to Norway to promote business with Scotland.
The Conservative MP was travelling to Oslo to meet business representatives and Norwegian government officials before heading to Bergen to meet the city’s mayor and visit Marine Harvest, the Aberdeen Evening Express reported.
Mundell will meet other Norwegian headquartered companies with economic links to Scotland, including energy firm Statoil, hydropower firm Statkraft and oil services company Aker Solutions.
Speaking ahead of the two-day trip, he said: ‘As the UK prepares to leave the EU, we want to secure a new economic partnership with Europe, and build and strengthen our trade relationships around the world.
‘Scottish companies will be at the forefront of that. Scotland’s skills, products and services are highly regarded globally, and we will build on that as we strike ambitious new trade deals.
‘Scotland is also a great place for companies to invest and operate. A number of Norwegian companies have extensive Scottish operations, and I will be highlighting to them the huge opportunities of continuing to invest in Scotland.’
