NBA China have an active part in promoting Norwegian business interests in China in co-operation with the Norwegian Trade Council, the Royal Norwegian Embassy and the Consulate General in Shanghai.

In spite of NBA China’s relatively short history, the association has proven to be well-received by its members & the community. Membership numbers continue to grow and members enthusiastically participate in making the association an active forum.

The Norwegian business environment and activities in China are relatively small and very diversified, and so the NBA aims to actively bridge the various challenges and difficulties experienced by its members in connection with their activities. NBA China also aspires to share valuable insights from diversified experience and know-how gained from Norwegian companies who have been through the process of setting up businesses in China and are currently thriving.
