About Norway-Hong Kong Chamber of Commerce
Norway-Hong Kong Chamber of Commerce (NHKCC) was founded in 1988 as Norway Hong Kong Business Association. It changed its name to the present in 2008.
NHKCC‘s main role is to be an active door opener for Norwegian companies wishing to establish themselves in Hong Kong and through Hong Kong in PRC China.
The role of Hong Kong has become even more important to Norwegian exporters and traders. As of 1st of July 1997 Hong Kong became part of China again as Special Administrative Region (SAR) under "one country two systems". This will last for 50 years, until 2047.
Hong Kong has for many years been voted as the best place in the world due to its ease to start and operate business. Hong Kong is also one of the most competitive economies in the world. Please have a look at our website under “news” for more details.”
The service sector is dominant in Hong Kong, especially the financial sector where Hong Kong competes with Singapore, London and New York to be one of the leading financial centres in the world.
In close co-operation with Hong Kong Trade Development Council, Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, London and Invest Hong Kong our chamber works continuously for our member's interests in and through Hong Kong to PRC China.
