Norway-Asia Business Summit 2018 Opens for Registration

We are delighted to announce that the seventh edition of the Norway-Asia Business Summit is taking place in Singapore 16-18 April 2018. Started by the Norwegian Business Association (Singapore) in 1998, the Norway-Asia Business Summit has evolved into a meeting place for Norwegian industry in the region, the support apparatus of the Norwegian government and the diplomatic missions in the region and as such it truly represents the “Team Norway” concept.

As always, the Summit will present opportunities for Norwegian companies in the region, as well as for colleagues coming from Norway, 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 the 2018 summit are within shipping, offshore, energy and new technologies. Consequently, the summit will focus on how the rapid digitalisation and transformation process will impact the industries and business environment in which the Norwegian companies in Singapore are operating. Further, the summit will focus on new opportunities for start-ups and involve successful entrepreneurships and up and coming companies in Asia. Finally, the Summit will also give attention to the ASEAN region, especially on political and economic trends.

Website for Registration and Payment

The summit's website http://www.norway-asia.com will continually be updated as new information and programme is available.

Participating in the summit will better prepare you and your company to handle the challenges and benefits of the great opportunities that lie within Asian markets. We are expecting some 250 participants from Norway and all of Asia. The summit will be held at the iconic landmark hotel The Fullerton.
