Doing Business in Norway
In recent years, several Russian companies have established business representations in Norway as f instance Lukoil and Rosneft. Both are members of the NRCC.
When a company has made a decision to enter the Norwegian market, there are a variety of options for penetrating the Norwegian market in broader scale. Options vary with cost, risk and the degree of control which can be exercised. The simplest form of entry strategy is normally a direct or indirect method such as an agent or distributor. More complex forms include truly global operations which may involve Licensing, Joint ventures or Ownership. The NRCC Norwegian-Russian Match Making Program, Business to Business - give Russian companies an excellent opportunity to establish direct business links. Such cooperation may include, but is not limited to, investment projects, joint ventures, trade operations, hereunder import and export.
NRCC Oslo provides the following paid marketing services:
· Matchmaking Program - Search for Business Partners
· Market Entry Strategies and Implementation
· Project Facilitation
