Jonas Nazarovas, Managing Director of AB DFDS Seaways, has become the first Honorary Consul of Denmark in the Klaipeda region. The solemn ceremony was attended by Ambassador Hans Brask and new Danish Consul Jonas Nazarovas, Klaipeda Mayor Vytautas Grubliauskas and Vice-Minister of Energy of the Republic of Lithuania, Daiva Garbaliauskaitė.

The establishment of the honorary consulate is expected to further strengthen bilateral economic and cultural relations between Denmark and Lithuania. It will play a significant role in representing Denmark and its interests in the western region of Lithuania.

This is where the context of offshore wind energy comes in. According to the Danish Embassy in Lithuania, offshore wind projects will be part of Klaipeda’s future as a transport and logistics hub in the Baltic Sea region.
