     Mr Chan and the delegation then toured the Vision of the Fjords, a hybrid electric sightseeing vessel designed and built in Norway, to understand the development and application of technology of green shipping.

     For the last stop in Oslo, Mr Chan and the delegation met with representatives from DNV GL, which is an international accredited classification society, to exchange views on the industry development prospects in respect of vessel safety, shipping equipment and technology.
