Home » Events » A Changing World – Consequences for Norwegian Industry

This year, we have seen several major changes in the world that has been both surprising and disturbing. From Trump’s candidature in the US election to the UK voting to leave the EU. This seminar seeks to answer questions on how these changes can potentially affect your business and the future for Norwegian industry internationally.

Half of what we produce in Norway are exported abroad. The US and the EU are by far our largest trading partners, representing 85% respectively. With the US election only months away, the outcome is still highly uncertain. What happens if Donald Trump is elected Commander in Chief of the world’s largest economy? Alternatively, will Hillary Clinton represent status quo? What can we expect to happen after Brexit? Will it be the beginning of the end for the EU?

In this session, we seek to shed some light on some of these issues, as well as hearing from member companies that have succeeded internationally, despite various cultural differences. We also meet member companies that, as a result of new production technology and automation, have decided to move their production home to Norway.
