The Norwegian Business Association (India) was officially registered on 28th January 2013. The launch of the association was facilitated and formed by Norwegian companies in India with help from the Royal Norwegian Embassy in India and Innovation Norway’s branch in New Delhi.
The basic aim and objective of NBAI is to promote bilateral relationships and business in general between India and Norway, to facilitate the exchange of views and information between Norwegian companies and other companies or firms in India in which there is a direct or indirect Norwegian interest.
The NBAI will host several events throughout the year including breakfast meetings, seafood dinner, information sharing meetings and generally serve as a platform where businesses can share experiences and establish contacts and networks.
There is an increasing amount of Norwegian companies getting established in India, by April 2013, more than 130 companies were present. The current growth in Indo – Norwegian economic and commercial ties is fuelled not only by India’s growth, potential and overall attractiveness to foreign investors, but also by complementarities of interest in sectors such as deep off-shore, shipping, hydro-electricity, information technology, bio-technology and light consumer goods.
NBAI encourages all newcomers, as well as already established Norwegian companies and firms in India, to become members. The strength of our association, and the added value for our members, is all about having a broad range of businesses represented and a variety of experiences to be shared.
Capt Navin Passey - Chairman NBAI
It is my privilege to have been elected to serve as Chairman of NBAI and I am proud to be part of an excellent team of members that strives to build successful business cooperation between India & Norwegian companies that exist, or wish to enter the Indian market.
Since its formation, NBAI has been dedicated to the idea that a strong business community is the backbone of success for its members, and we have built a network of community partnerships, a dedicated team of Board Members from each Regional zone who volunteer and offer leadership in their sectors and who have an exceptional vision.
We present events, seminars, workshops, delegations to promote professional development and provide exposure for member’s businesses. Whatever the business needs or interests, you will be able to find assistance, inspiration and ideas through NBAI.
With close links and support of the Embassy and Innovation Norway in Delhi, and the Consulate in Mumbai, our goal will be to ensure that our member companies have opportunities to succeed and prosper. To those entering the Indian business space, we will offer every assistance possible.
