Defence cooperation between The King and the President of the Republic of Poland
Their Majesties The King accompanied the President of the Republic of Poland Mr Andrzej Duda to Akershus Fortress. At Akershus Fortress, they were given a presentation of the Norwegian Advanced Surface to Air Missile System at the fortress square. They also witnessed the signing of an agreement between Kongsberg Gruppen and the Polish Armament Group on expansion of their collaboration. The two companies already cooperate on deliveries for a coastal defence system to the Polish navy. Furthermore, they also received a presentation of NASAMS (Norwegian Advanced Surface to Air Missile System). In Norway, the air defense system operates by the Air Force.
Kongsberg Defense Systems’ event
Kongberg Defense Systems hired NPG to help with the event. NPG had the pleasure of delivering everything from the tent where the event was held, to the furniture, lighting, red carpet, technicians, AV equipment, plants and so forth. This is the third time that a Polish president and his wife have conducted a State Visit to Norway. King Harald and Queen Sonja have also conducted State Visits to Poland on two occasions. The visit will help to further strengthen the close ties between the two countries.
