Norway has reopened its Consulate General in Mumbai after over four decades and pushed for closer cooperation with fast-growing India in economic and other fields. Norwegian Foreign Minister Borje Brende re-opened the office at Bandra-Kurla Complex in suburban Mumbai, a move he said will consolidate his country's ties with India. The office would extend its services to cover rest of Maharashtra, Gujarat and Goa, said new Consul General of Norway to Mumbai Torbjorn Holthe.

The Consulate General was established to serve traditional Norwegian shipping and maritime trade interests. Brende said, reopening of the consulate would be a win-win situation for India and Norway as both the countries would have a closer cooperation now onwards.
