In a statement, the Norwegian embassy said the planning seminar is taking place in Colombo for the New Norwegian Research vessel to come to Sri Lankan waters in 2018 to carry out a survey on the marine resources. This is part of the technical and institutional cooperation on Fisheries between Norway and Sri Lanka, which was endorsed by the top level political authorities of the two countries.

The Ambassador of Norway to Sri Lanka and Maldives, Thorbjørn Gaustadsæther, stated that the Norwegian Research Vessel Dr Fridtjof Nansen would make it possible to significantly step up Norway’s assistance for ecosystem-based marine management in developing countries, such as Sri Lanka.

He stated this upon addressing the gathering at an event to recognize the finalization of the schedules for the Dr. Fridtjof Nansen’s arrival at the Bay of Bengal.

The Ambassador further stated that the vessel’s arrival in the Bay of Bengal was part of the new ocean strategy of Norway.
