The Norwegian Business Association has delightfully announced that the sixth edition of the Norway-Asia Business Summit is to take place in Singapore in 2016. 12-14 April are the dates when this summit returns to where it all started back in 1998.
The Norway-Asia Business Summit has evolved into a meeting place for Norwegian industry in the region, Norwegian government agencies and the diplomatic missions in the region – as truly representing the “Team Norway” concept.
This annual summit (this time held at The Fullerton Hotel) will once again present opportunities for Norwegian companies in the region, as well as for colleagues from Norway attending for a rich mix of discussions on business in Asia, Asian economics and Asian politics. The aim is to strengthen the competitiveness of Norwegian businesses in Asia through increased knowledge of political and economic trends, as well as market development in the region.
The main topics for next year’s summit are shipping, offshore and energy. Singapore was recently recognized as the world’s most important maritime centre, followed by Oslo in third place. Singapore also holds a strong position in offshore oil and gas and provides access to important growth markets in the region. These are believed to be the reasons why Singapore has the biggest concentration of Norwegian businesses within Asia. The summit will also give attention to successful entrepreneurship in Asia, and to the ASEAN region, especially on how Norwegian businesses can benefit from Norway’s new partnership with ASEAN.
Participants will get to equip themselves with a better understanding of to handle the challenges and benefits of the great opportunities that lie within Asian markets. Some 250 participants from Norway and around Asia are expected to join.
