A New Business Strategy for Western Norway
Vestland-, Møre og Romsdal- and Rogaland county municipalities in Western Norway are embarking on the task of creating a new business strategy for the whole of Western Norway to be led by the West Norway Council.
Business and society on the West Coast and in Norway are facing major changes. Global trends such as the green shift, urbanisation, centralisation and an aging population will also affect people on the west coast in the years to come.
The initial work on the new business strategy in March 2021 and the business community will be closely involved in the process as the steering group consists of representatives from the whole of Western Norway and from several industries including GCE Ocean Technology.
Competence, collaboration, centralisation, settlement and technology development were among the topics raised in the first meeting between the actors. As well as the "westerners'" ability to change and adapt.
One of the goals when developing a new business strategy is to create a common platform for the business community across counties and industries.
Where does Western Norway have the potential for growth? What framework conditions are needed to achieve growth? These are some of the questions to be answered before summer. The advisory company PwC has been assigned the task of assisting the West Norway Council in their work.
The business strategy should be ready in June 2021.
