About Thai-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce

The Thai-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1996 with the aim of facilitating increased trade and investment between Thailand and Norway. It provides members with a forum to improve business conditions and opportunities as well as creating venues and channels for exchange and sharing of information. The chamber organises business related events from Breakfast Meetings covering current business affairs, to topical Business Seminars and Dinner Events featuring guest speakers.

Current membership stands at around 90 premium and corporate members in addition to some 10 individuals. The chamber office is co-located with Innovation Norway's representative office in Bangkok's central business district and also works closely with the Royal Norwegian Embassy as part of Team Norway. Through its membership of the Joint Foreign Chambers of Commerce in Thailand, the chamber identifies challenges and opportunities in doing business in Thailand, seeking support in Thai Government policies to address such issues. This includes interaction with key stakeholders in Thailand relevant to the business community such as the Board of Trade, the Thai Customs Department, The Immigration Department, The Revenue Department and the Board of Investment as well as providing access to top officials in the Thai administration.

The Norway-Asia Business Review Magazine is issued four times per year. Business Review features interesting articles about business, trade, politics and life style in both Norway and Southeast Asia. It is distributed free to the members of all Norwegian business associations in South and Southeast Asia as well as other contacts. The Chamber website www.norcham.com contains news and information about the latest Chamber activities. It also provides links to useful intelligence within business and trade in Thailand.
