The AmCham Norway Story

The American Chamber of Commerce in Norway (AmCham) was formally constituted as a Norwegian business association in 1998. Our roots, however, extend back to 1958 when the American Club was founded in Oslo.

In 1999, AmCham and the Norwegian-American Chamber of Commerce (NACC Oslo) merged. The merger was an important step for American-Norwegian business at the threshold of the new millennium.

We are proud to have advanced transatlantic business for the past 65 years. With a broad range of member-backed initiatives, we look forward to working on behalf of our growing community for many years to come.
