At a ceremony in New York on Tuesday attended by King Harald and Queen Sonja of Norway, Hydro was presented with this year's prize for developing trade between Norway and the USA.

The prize was awarded by the Norwegian-American chamber of commerce in the USA, in conjunction with Innovation Norway, representing Norwegian authorities.

Hydro has received the Norwegian-American Trade Award thanks to the major growth enjoyed by our American business in recent years, particularly in Aluminium.

The ceremony at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York gathered 200 dignitaries, primarily from sections of the US business community having strong trade ties with Norway.

The prize was presented by Oil and Energy Minister Thorhild Widvey. Martin Carter, who heads Hydro's aluminium activities in the US, and Jørgen Rostrup, who heads New Energy, briefed the audience on Hydro's US business and work on future energy sources.
