Eimskip, the Icelandic shipping company that operates on Portland’s waterfront, and local officials will host a visiting delegation from Reykjavik on Wednesday. The visit is intended to enhance business prospects between Maine and the island nation that is a gateway to much of the European market.
“It is great to experience the enthusiasm from governments and businesses on both sides of the Atlantic to strengthen relationships capitalizing on Eimskip’s Green Line,” Larus Isfeld, managing director of Eimskip USA, said in a news release. “We will continue to invest in connecting people both culturally and geopolitically, and business will follow. This visit is a result of Maine’s Gubernatorial Trade Mission to Iceland in 2014, where city officials from Portland met with Reykjavik city officials.”
