Norway Funds Shipbuilding Training Program

May 22, 2007

Norway has committed some $4m in grants to aid Vietnam’s shipbuilding industry in human resource development over the course of the next three years, VNA reported. A deal was signed in Hanoi, on May 21, to seal the decision during a visit by Norwegian State Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Anne Stenhammer. An amount of $1.84m is to be funded by Norway's Government, while Det Norske Veritas, Hoegh Autoliners and Jotun Paint, three of Norway's leading shipbuilders, will finance the remainder.

The project aims to equip the Vietnam Shipbuilding Industry Group (Vinashin) with new skills relating to shipbuilding management and quality control. Minister of Planning and Investment Nguyen Hong Phuc said at the signing ceremony that Norway’s assistance would help Vietnam meet international standards in this industry as well as enable the industry to win more contracts.
