A Midwest Business Delegation made up of representatives from North Dakota and Minnesota just visited Oslo. Jason Turflinger, Managing Director at AmCham Norway, invited the group to breakfast and a round table discussion. There where short briefings on AmCham, Norway House in Minneapolis, the Commercial Section from the U.S. Embassy in Oslo, Oslo Chamber of Commerce, Oslo Medtech, and former Member of Parliament and CEO for Norway of Burson-Marsteller Morten Pettersen.

AmCham plays an important role as an arena for sharing information, networking, and public events. It is a valued partner in the government’s work on strengthening the economic ties between the U.S. and Norway. The past few years have been exciting ones for investments in the U.S. The U.S. economy is growing and companies are expanding. As of July there have been 64 straight months of job growth. Norway has ranked as the fifth-fastest-growing source of Foreign Direct Investment into the U.S. for the last few years. According to the latest figures Norway is now the 12th largest. The U.S. is Norway’s most important trade partner, after the EU.
