The Norwegian Business Association (NBA) China is an active non-profit member-based association for Norwegian companies and business people in China. The NBA China was established in 2015, as a result of a merger between NBA Beijing and NBA Shanghai the same year. NBA China has a substantial membership base with over 80 corporate, individual and student members.
The Norwegian business environment and activities in China are relatively small and very diversified, and so the NBA aims to actively bridge the various challenges and difficulties experienced by its members in connection with their activities. NBA China also aspires to share valuable insights from diversified experience and know-how gained from Norwegian companies who have been through the process of setting up businesses in China and are currently thriving.
The NBA China is a dynamic association that organizes on average 8-10 events every year, ranging from seminars and sessions with corporate representatives from China and Norway, as well as social functions and networking events. Each meeting addresses a pertinent topic suggested by members. Depending on topic, experts are invited to hold an introduction on the subject and share their insights, followed by a discussion. The Board and the Executive Officers conducts everyday services and arranges activities as required.
With headquarters in Shanghai, the NBA China has established a Beijing Chapter that governs and hosts all activities in Beijing while maintaining the objectives of the NBA China. The Beijing Chapter takes an active role in promoting Norwegian and member business in Beijing as an integral part of the NBA China.
Individual membership is open to all Norwegian citizens, who are engaged in business or a profession in China, but whose company does not qualify for membership.
It will also be open to members from other nationalities that, in the opinion of the Board, will contribute towards achieving the objectives of the association. Individual members are entitled to hold office but not to vote at the general meetings of the Association.
Individual Membership Fee: RMB1500 +3%VAT
