ABOUT US

The Norwegian Business Association Singapore (NBAS) provides a forum and meeting place for Norwegian companies, their executives and employees in Singapore to network, discuss ideas, exchange experience, and expand their knowledge base about business related issues.

Founded in 1993, NBAS is a major contributor to the Norwegian community in Singapore and organises a diverse range of events through the year, individually or in partnership with the other players in Team Norway. Team Norway consists of NBAS, The Royal Norwegian Embassy in Singapore and Innovation Norway.

Close to 200 Norwegian companies are established in Singapore. These companies represent one of the highest concentrations of Norwegian business interests in any city in the world outside Norway.

NBAS encourages all newcomers, as well as already established Norwegian companies, to become members. The strength of our association, and the added value for our members, is all about having a broad range of businesses represented and a variety of experiences to be shared. Join us today to network, learn, and share!
