Depending on the companies involved, we will try to organize meetings with organizations such as UNDP, UNHCR, WHO, UNICEF, UNOPS, WFP, AU and representatives of Norwegian NGOs represented in Ethiopia.
  • Agriculture presenting Norwegian technology, competence and solutions to Ethiopian authorities and potential partners to support the development of the Ethiopian agricultural sector.
  • Clean energy presenting Norwegian technology solutions to authorities and potential local partners to explore possibilities for cooperation with local partners.

The business arrangements will mainly take place in Addis Ababa and the surrounding areas.

The programme for the business delegation starts on November 6th and ends on November 8th. The official visit starts on November 7th and ends on November 9th.

The fee for each member of the business delegation is NOK 5000. An invoice will be issued after the registration deadline. Participants must plan and pay for their own travel and accommodation. The participation fee covers all official meals, rent of seminar facilities, organized transportation as well as the cost for two guests at the social event.

Enterprises considering to participate in the programme related to the UN and humanitarian market should state their interest by September 20th, listing which organizations and contacts would be relevant to meet.
