Minister of Fisheries from Norway Tom Harald Nesvik visiting Brazil

ABRAN, representing Norges Rederiforbund and its members in the country, met with the Minister and highlighted the global nature of the shipping industry and the importance of Brazil to the Norwegian Shipowners.

According to Mr. Ricardo Cesar Fernandes, Executive Director of ABRAN, Norwegian shipowner’s presence in the Brazilian continental shelf, although reduced compared to 2015, is  remarkable, specially in the offshore sector,  where more than 50% of the most specialized vessels are Norwegian owned or controlled units. In cabotage, deepsea, tankers and seismic the market share is also important.
