About the Summit

[column col=”1/3″]The NABS 2016 Team is happy to announce that Prime Minister Erna Solberg‘s attendance at this year’s Summit has been confirmed. We are looking forward to welcoming PM Solberg and her team to Singapore in April.

We are delighted to announce that the sixth edition of the Norway-Asia Business Summit is taking place in Singapore 12-14 April 2016. Started by the Norwegian Business Association (Singapore) in 1998, the Summit has evolved into a meeting place for Norwegian industry in the region, the support apparatus of the Norwegian government and the diplomatic missions in the region and as such it truly represents the “Team Norway” concept. The summit will be held at the iconic landmark hotel The Fullerton Hotel.[/column]

[column col=”1/3″]As always, the Summit will present opportunities for Norwegian companies in the region, as well as for colleagues coming from Norway, for a rich mix of discussions on business in Asia, Asian economics and Asian politics.

The main topics for this year’s summit are shipping, offshore and energy. Singapore was recently recognized as the world’s most important maritime centre, followed by Oslo in third place. Singapore also holds a strong position in offshore oil and gas and as an entry to important growth markets in the region. These are believed to be the reasons why Singapore has the biggest concentration of Norwegian businesses within Asia.[/column]

The aim is to strengthen the competitiveness of Norwegian businesses in Asia through increased knowledge of political and economic trends, as well as market development in the region. Participating in the summit will better prepare you and your company to handle the challenges and benefits of the great opportunities that lie within Asian markets. We are expecting some 250 participants from Norway and all of Asia. Click here to see some of our confirmed contributors.[/column]
