Norwegian Business Association Korea – By the Business, For the Business
The Norwegian Business Association Korea is a non-profit, member-based association for Norwegian companies and business people in the Republic of Korea. The association was established in 2002 on the initiative of the Norwegian ambassador, and the Royal Norwegian Embassy continues to support the activities of the association. NBA Korea aims to be a natural contact point for Norwegian companies entering Korea, with membership open to both organisations and individuals.
Lead by a board elected from the members, NBA Korea’s objective is to provide fora where topics of mutual interest are presented and discussed, providing opportunities for business networking and socialising among members. The association acts as a representative voice for Norwegian companies in Korea through its role as a sounding board towards Team Norway. NBA Korea also cooperates with other appropriate bodies to further support the objectives.
The current membership of the association is multi-national, with representation from various industries.
