On Friday 13 September NBAS held its annual boat trip in Singapore, gathering more than 160 participants. The vessel, the replica of the famous Ming Dynasty Imperial, Cheng Ho, as usual framed the event that was a 3-hour boat trip in the harbor of Singapore including a buffet dinner.
The atmosphere at the boat was very pleasant, and NBAS was in general happy with the event, Head of Secretariat Kjersti Thorvildsen tells.
The age group of the boat trip participants has gone down the last couple years, she adds:
“It means more and more young people are attending, which of course is very nice.”
The main purpose with the boat trip was to welcome new Norwegians and NBAS members to Singapore, and the chilled air on the boat’s deck in combination with good food and beverages seemed to be a good place to start. The boat trip has been a permanent part of NBAS’ calendar since before 1996, and the association intends to continue the tradition. The annual boat trip was jointly hosted by The Royal Norwegian Embassy and Norwegian Business Association, Singapore.
