Message from our patron


I am
delighted to have this opportunity to convey warm appreciation to the members
of the Norwegian Irish Business Association for their ongoing work in promoting
friendship and business relations between Norway and Ireland. Our two countries share a wide range of views
and interests and cooperate closely on a variety of international issues. NIBA plays a valuable role in helping to
develop the bilateral links between Norway and Ireland and in highlighting the
mutual advantage for both countries from more intensive economic and business
links. I am very pleased to follow in
the footsteps of my predecessors and to continue the close cooperation which they had with NIBA in working to
develop closer business links between 
our two countries.
