KONGSBERG is one of five main sponsors of the Norwegian Pavilion at the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai, China.


“This is a unique opportunity for KONGSBERG to be present and build important relations in China,“ says CEO Walter Qvam, who will be visiting Shanghai in the end of May together with a large delegation of Norwegian Ministers and business leaders.

KONGSBERG's main focus in China is within the maritime segment of the company, especially shipbuilding.
