Overview

Norway is one of China 's important trading partners in Northern Europe as well as one of China 's main suppliers of fertilizer, aquatic products and oil in Europe . In recent years, the two countries have carried out increasingly intensive cooperation and exchange in such fields as trade, investment and technology import. In 2007, leaders of the two countries reached an agreement on the launch of a joint FTA feasibility study. After half a year's research, both sides agreed that the establishment of the China-Norway FTA will further deepen bilateral relations and cooperation in economy and trade, promote the economic development of the two countries, and improve the living standards of the two peoples. On this basis, the first round of negotiations on the China-Norway FTA was successfully held in Oslo , Norway , on September 18, 2008.
