“In our work to strengthen the ties across the Atlantic further, the Norwegian Government finds a crucial partner in the American Chamber of Commerce in Norway. Together, AmCham and the Norwegian Government are ensuring that the Atlantic does not act as a barrier between our two countries, but rather as a bridge.”

– Børge Brende, Minister of Foreign Affairs
