Dear Members and Extended Network,

It was with great pleasure that the NBCC were able to bid H.E. The Norwegian Ambassador, Wegger Strømmen welcome at the 113thAGM hosted at DNB’s offices. It is also a pleasure to announce that Annett Åbø has been elected member of the council and president of the Chamber and you will meet her at our events as well as Chair of the Membership Committee. The Council and I were proud to announce that last year’s result was a welcomed positive one also in financial terms with greater participation from members, extended networks such as Norwegian and British Embassies and Honorary Consuls, local Chambers of Commerce on both sides of the North Sea as well educational institutions and companies who have an active interest in the trade between Norway and the UK.

 

Brexit is of course an overshadowing topic which concerns us all and the Chamber shows its relevance where we take members interests when they may be compromised or limited but also highlighting issues and concerns companies and individuals may have. We continue our series of Brexit events and in May we have a focus on Commercial Contracts.

 

We are looking forward to showcasing our member companies and hope that you stay up to date with our events calendar where we among others have focus on Sustainability at the Nordic Chambers’ Business Forum, The Ocean Space Event, Human Rights in Business as well as doing Business in the UK just to mention a few.

 

If you would like to take an active part in the Chamber please feel free to get in touch with any of Council members or with me and we will be more than happy to connect you.

 

In advance, Happy Easter Holidays.

 

Jan Bertelsen

General Manager
