Establish an Australian Mission in Norway

The Commonwealth of Australia and The Kingdom of Norway trade extensively between each other, including an annualised average of A$75million of Australian export and over A$401million of Norwegian imports to Australia.

In addition to this, Australia’s vast unopened shale oil reserves in the North-West have an immense potential to be explored with the technological aid of Norway’s pioneering EquiNor operations. It is well within Australia’s economic strategy for the future to further Australia’s exposure throughout Norway.

As The Commonwealth of Australia’s closest geographical neighbour, sharing an official territorial border on the continent of Antarctica, it is pertinent that an official Australian Embassy be established in The Kingdom of Norway.
Norway currently has a mission in Canberra - Australia, yet Australia does not have a reciprocal mission on Norwegian soil. As such, Australia currently goes without national exposure in Norway – to further Australian economic, business, and research & development interests in the Norwegian community.

Reinforcing, refining, and reviewing our shared international objectives into the future can only be achieved in a truly expedient manner via the establishment of an Australian Embassy to Norway; thus, it is within the Australian National Interest that this petition be entertained by the House.
