Norwegians visit Nisko
Local entrepreneurship development was discussed by representatives of the Norwegian municipality of Midt-Telemark and the Polish town of Nisko, who met for the third time in Nisko on 10 and 11 May.

The visit was organised as part of the “Local Development” Programme.

Local government representatives from Poland and Norway talked about how cities and towns should develop space fostering local business development. The agenda included Norwegian guests meeting local businesses, and an introduction to Nisko’s produce and investment offer.

The group of Norwegian partners included i.a. the Mayor of the Midt-Telemark Municipality Siri Blichfeldt Dyrland, municipality director Per Dehli, representative of the Norwegian Association of Local and Regional Authorities Inger Lysa, and Norwegian business and local government representatives.

The visit was organised as part of the partnership formed for purposes of a “Local Development” Programme project, financed from Norwegian Financial Mechanism funds.

Norwegian guests visited local businesses: VOSTER (door manufacturer), OPTIMUM (mattress manufacturer), ARMES (wall materials manufacturer), NIKOS (pet food and animal feed manufacturer), and TOLO (bedlinen products for children and infants).

Tentative business relationships were formed during the visit, a potential opening for Polish companies to Norwegian markets.
