Policy Areas

Since its origin, AmCham has successfully addressed numerous issues related to the investment and trade climate between Norway and the US.

As the leading area for transatlantic business interests, AmCham is focused primarily on event facilitation, member-to-member business assistance, and advocacy initiatives. AmCham strives to derive maximum value from member investment and get the most out companies’ commitment to doing business in Norway and the US.

The American Chamber of Commerce in Norway (AmCham) is an independent business networking, information, and assistance organization promoting the interests of over 240 Norwegian, American, and international member companies.

AmCham Norway receives no subsidy from any governmental body, and we rely on membership dues, sponsorships, and event participation fees to cover our operating expenses.

Taxation issues, legislative processes, education exchange, abrupt policy shifts, and joint communications are also addressed through various ad-hoc AmCham working groups of five or more member companies.

AmCham Norway strives to: 

  • Encourage American-Norwegian business relations
  • Promote the mutual interest of its members
  • Provide social, business, and policy forums for its members
  • Strengthen American-Norwegian bonds by providing dependable, balanced information about forces at play within these markets
  • Facilitate networking opportunities between American and Norwegian business leaders
  • Act as a host to the international business community to enhance professional development
  • Participate in programs and obtain information on protecting businesses from unfavorable governmental regulations
  • Assist in utilizing US Embassy channels with direct access to the American Government
  • Produce and provide useful publications such as newsletters and an annual membership directory
