In one year the new Stockholm Norvik Port will open and the Hong Kong Chamber of Commerce in Sweden arranged a seminar in the heart of Stockholm together with The Ports of Stockholm and Hutchison Ports in order to highlight the benefits the new port will deliver for Swedish businesses.

Shipping in the Stockholm region is undergoing big changes and the Ports of Stockholm is building Stockholm Norvik Port, which will open in May 2020. It is said that the deep water port will be a game changer in the Baltic Sea area. The container business will be operated by Hutchison Ports.

“The cooperation between Hutchison Ports and Ports of Stockholm is an excellent example of how to create value for its customers, employees and the society at large. The Chamber´s role is to promote business between Hong Kong and Sweden. A seminar like this is an example on how we want to promote successful cooperation between Hong Kong and Sweden,” said Torborg Chetkovich, Chairperson Hong Kong Chamber of Commerce in Sweden.

“The new port will be the only deep-water container facility on the East Coast of Sweden, Stockholm Norvik Port will deliver both economic and environmental benefits by reducing overland transport, bringing ships and cargo closer to the country’s largest market,” said Clemence Cheng, Managing Director Europe, Hutchison Ports.

“We are very happy to have Hutchison Ports as our partner and operator in Stockholm Norvik Port. We have had a good cooperation since 2008 and now the work will be intensified as we are getting closer to the opening. The building of the port is proceeding very fast and the project is on time and budget,” said Thomas Andersson, CEO Ports of Stockholm.
