IE Expo

On 4 May 2018, The Trade Council of Denmark and ICDK Shanghai organised a Nordic Pavilion and a business seminar on Nordic Green Technology at the IE Expo in Shanghai – Asia’s leading trade fair for environmental technology solutions within water, waste, air and soil. Nordic Innovation funded the business seminar, which we arranged in collaboration with the Danish Export Association, Innovation Norway, Business Finland, Business Sweden and IVL.

The Danish Consul General of Shanghai, Nicolai Prytz, and his colleagues from Norway, Sweden and Finland all visited the Nordic Pavilion and gave welcoming speeches at the business seminar.

The Nordic Green Technology Business Seminar offered an interesting programme with speakers from 14 Nordic companies specialising in water and wastewater solutions, waste management, circular economy solutions and air pollution treatment.

ICDK Shanghai's Executive Director, Morten Brandtoft, moderated the seminar and facilitated the dialogue with the more than 60 Chinese participants from design institutes, industrial parks, local environmental technology companies, universities and research institutes.

Morten Brandtoft also gave a presentation of the Nordic Sustainable Cities Project, which is one of the six flagship projects under the Nordic Solutions to Global Challenges – an initiative coordinated by the Nordic Council of Ministers. The aim of the project is to strengthen the Nordic brand, add value to existing trade promotion efforts through Nordic cooperation, and to expand the market potential for Nordic businesses.
