V Norwegian-Russian Business Forum was organised in Oslo on 26 October
Norwegian-Russian Chamber of Commerce (NRCC) and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation (CCI of Russia) thank all the participants of the V Norwegian-Russian Business Forum (V NRBF) held on 26 October in Oslo! The event gathered 240 representatives of Russian and Norwegian companies and organizations, as well as public officials from both countries.
This is the 5th consecutive NRBF that has been organised. NRBF is a unique framework for discussing the most important issues of the Norwegian-Russian business cooperation with participation of authorities and business representatives. It is the leading business arena where Norwegian and Russian companies and organizations can present their projects, exchange experiences, meet partners and establish contacts.
Norwegian and Russian representatives from government institutions oficially opened the Forum, followed up by interventions by high-level business experts from Norway and Russia. At the end of each parallel session participants took part in lively panel discussions with the speakers of the Forum.
The following parallel sections were organised within V NRBF framework:
- Maritime cooperation Norway-Russia
- Russian industry, economy & Eurasian development
The Norwegian-Russian Business Forum took place in the venue of the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise (NHO).
Forum organisers believe that the Forum was informative and worthwhile for everyone involved. We look forward to welcoming you to the next Norwegian-Russian Business Forum, that will take place in Moscow in 2018!
