The conditions for the shipping and offshore industry are more important than ever, with declining oil prices and a lower number of ships under the Norwegian flag. The Norwegian shipowners therefore welcome the new maritime strategy presented by the government in Norway on Friday last week, according to a press release from the Norwegian Shipowners' Association.

"In these times when markets are particularly challenging, stable and competitive maritime policies are more important than ever. The new strategy encourages adaptability and innovation that will allow the industry to take advantage of future maritime opportunities," says Sturla Henriksen, CEO of the shipowners' association.
