Welcome to our Business Page!
One of my key goals as Ambassador is to increase trade and business between Norway and the U.S.
President Obama announced the National Export Initiative (NEI) two years ago, with the goal of doubling exports by 2014, and under Secretary Clinton’s, and Secretary Bryson’s leadership, we at the Embassy are working energetically to promote economic statecraft and commercial diplomacy, in order to actively expand trade and investment opportunities for U.S. companies in Norway.
In my time as Ambassador, I have been fortunate to work with many U.S. companies doing or seeking to do business in Norway, and I have met with many Norwegian companies trying to improve their business prospects in the U.S. I have travelled all over Norway, through all 19 counties, and to a number of places in the U.S., including Minnesota, Seattle, Houston, New York, Los Angeles, Silicon Valley, and my hometown of Boston, to encourage business, government, and educational leaders in those communities to foster and build closer economic ties between our two great countries. At the Embassy in Oslo and at our residence, we frequently host networking and promotional events to showcase products, discuss policies or simply bring the right people together.
The Embassy, including the Commercial, Political/Economic and Public Affairs Sections, is dedicated to promoting and protecting U.S. commercial interests in Norway and stands ready to offer a variety of services to both U.S. and Norwegian companies.
I hope you find the information on this site useful, and please do call upon us to assist you in whatever way we can.
