NORWAY'S LONGEST ADMINISTRATION

NORDLAND COUNTY MUNICIPALITY IS CLOSE, BOTH HERE AND THERE

Nordland County Council stretches 500 km from Trøndelag to Troms. With responsibility for public transport on land and sea, secondary schools, county roads and national roads, dental health, sporting arenas, and business development in the county's forty-one municipalities, the county council is an important facilitator to ensure that the wheels is turning, and that people and business are doing well.

Higher education is one of the county council's most important tasks, but ferries, speed boats and bus transport is also a high priority. Nordland County extends from the forested inland in the southeast, to the fishing communities in the northwest, towards Lofoten and Vesterålen. Substantial amounts of hydropower are produced in Nordland, and some of the largest smelters in the country are also located here.

The export value from Nordland is large, and the county is rich in natural resources. Many nations can envy Nordland's riches in fishing and aquaculture, gas and oil, mining, hydropower, forestry, and agriculture. The only thing Nordland lacks are people. Only 240,000 people live in this long, but so rich county.

Nordland County Council's aim is to offer important services to the county's residents, with responsibilities that cut across social, economic, and environmental needs.

 

Nordland County Council governs according to the goals laid down in the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
