Doing Business in Norway


The economic growth in Russia is resulting in both stable development of national companies and improving wealth of Russian people. One Russian company after another enters the area of international economic relations, either via own IPOs or by starting business abroad.

In the recent years, the NRCC has seen several of its Russian member companies starting their activities in Norway. All of them seek, of course, professional legal assistance. But it is also an advantage to know at least some basic do's and dont's, principles and definitions.

NRCC Oslo provides the following marketing services:

• Board Representation
• Representation in the Russian Market
• Project Facilitation
• Project Management
• Business Development
• Market Entry Strategies and Implementation
• Communication Strategies
• Matchmaking Program
• Search for Business Partners
• Business Network

Despite of the close neighbourhood, Norwegian business circles still have a lot to learn about Russian market. Especially newcomers do not always know where and how to start. In order to fill the gap, the NRCC has developed "Russia Business Directory", a database containing information about Russian economy, state and society. This project has been partly financed by the Norwegian Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
