Norway-Hong Kong Chamber of Commerce was started in 1988 as Norway Hong Kong Business Association and has been an active "door opener" for Norwegian companies wishing to establish themselves in Hong Kong and PRC China since then.
The role of Hong Kong has changed and has become even more important to Norwegian exporters and traders since it in 1997 became part of China again as SAR: Special Administrative Region under "one country two systems". This will last for 50 years, until 2047.
Hong Kong is still the country in the world where it is easiest to start and operate a business and Hong Kong is one of the most competitive in the world economy. Please have a look at our website under “news” for more details.”
The financial sector is very big and important for Hong Kong which is competing with London and New York as the world's leading financial centre.
In co-operation with Hong Kong Trade Development Council, Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, London and Invest Hong Kong our chamber will work continuously for our member's interests in Hong Kong and PRC China.
