NOROCC's Objectives

PROMOTING THE DEVELOPMENT OF COMMERCIAL RELATIONS BETWEEN

NORWAY and ROMANIA

AND TO PROVIDE THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF BUSINESS SERVICE



ABOUT US


In Romanian


“NOROC”


means Good Luck, Chance, Bright Future. It is also used as a greeting when people meet and shake hands, or as a cheer when people have a toast, like “Skål!“, in Norwegian.

To us


“NOROCC”


means the Norwegian-Romanian Chamber of Commerce, an independent non-profit organization enjoying the full support of the Romanian Embassy in Norway and the Romanian government authorities in general.

The Norwegian-Romanian Chamber of Commerce


- NOROCC -


...is an independent, non-profit association with funding mainly from donations and membership fees. It has been established in April, 2010, having the Mission to strengthen the quality of Norwegian-Romanian business relations; its’ Vision is to create economies of scale that bring down costs for Romanian and Norwegian companies, by bringing businesses together around efficiency; NOROCC’s Objectives are to promote the development of commercial relations between Norway and Romania and to provide the highest standards of business services.

Although it is assumed that the earliest contact between the Romanian and Norwegian people has been in the 9th century AD, when Varangians began trading with the Byzantine Empire along routes that led through Romania, formal relations between the modern states began only in 1917, towards the end of the First World War. Norway was one of the first countries to recognize the new regime in Romania after the Revolution of 1989.

Diplomatic relations greatly improved since then, however business opportunities have remained unexplored in both markets. This is NOROCC’s main belief and the most important reason for which it was born. “The secret of success is to do the common things uncommonly well”, used to say John D. Rockefeller, the well-known American oil magnate. It is also NOROCC’s favorite saying and we strongly support that we are endlessly following his advice and example.

Why you should join NOROCC?


NOROCC IS THE VOICE OF ROMANIAN AND NORWEGIAN BUSINESS INTERESTS IN BOTH COUNTRIES

AND WORKS FOR SPECIFIC ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT INCENTIVES,

MORE EFFECTIVE IMPORT AND EXPORT SUPPORT POLICIES, AND A BETTER BUSINESS INFRASTRUCTURE


NOROCC is a place where Romanian and Norwegian businesses can network, look for business partners, and acquire information on specific business opportunities.


It also serves as a forum for international visitors who want to address Romanian and Norwegian business and political leaders. The Chamber is working to build a better business climate and increase incentives for foreign investors to Romania.

NOROCC is devoted to stimulating business for its members by organizing events that allow them to establish contacts among themselves, as well as helping them to meet up with important guests. It lobbies successfully on behalf of its members with the two countries governments and is determined to continue to be a serious contributor to the public discussion on fiscal and economic policies in Romania, being a strong voice in protecting the interests of its members and the Romanian and Norwegian business community in general.


Raise your profile



Whilst the Chamber is not in the business of promoting one member over another, through its well-respected quarterly publication, B2B, the Chamber will seek to help its members keep abreast of newsworthy stories about local businesses, particularly if they are issue-related and impact on a sector as a whole.

Help Increase Your Business


FOR MANY INDIVIDUALS AND BUSINESSES COMING TO NORWAY FOR THE FIRST TIME,

A VISIT TO THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND INDUSTRY IS ALMOST ALWAYS ON THEIR TO DO LIST

Whether it is to drop off their calling card, gather information about forming a company, ask about finding office accommodation or how to go about finding staff, NOROCC acts as a reliable and trusted conduit for new businesses. In this role we always act in a transparent and fair manner. We provide visitors if is possible with lists of companies operating in a particular sector as a first point of contact. This information comes from our members database. Members thus benefit from being kept in touch with new business opportunities before others.

Today Norway is a very well connected economy and for those who are local, knowing who the right person to contact in a particular company or organisation is not usually a problem. However, for those companies who are new to the Norwegian or Romanian business community this can be more of a challenge. The NOROCC is here to assist in making those connections.

Network and met new contacts and clients


PERHAPS ONE OF THE MOST TANGIBLE BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP IS THAT

THE NOROCC OPENS DOORS FOR YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS

Keep you informed with changes in legislation


SINCE THE CHAMBER IS REPRESENTED ON SEVERAL COMMITTEES IT HAS

AN ECONOMIC EARLY WARNING SYSTEM AS TO PROPOSED CHANGES TO LEGISLATION

It is able to keep its members informed and where the proposed changes are likely to affect members, then in most cases the Chamber will, in consultation with its members, formulate an appropriate response. Membership in NOROCC is open to all individuals and organizations who are interested in building a strong economic partnership between Norway and Romania. Current members range from small businesses to large corporations in the fields of banking and finance, construction, communications, education, import/export, law, and transportation, among others. Registration on the website and full access to the Members’ Directory is available only to the members of NOROCC.

Agenda for 2018

October 31st 2017

We are delighted to announce you that the Norwegian-Romanian Chamber of Commerce (NOROCC) has recently relaunched its activity after a pause caused by the fact that His Excellency, mister Cezar Armeanu, left Norway and now successfully serves as the Ambassador of Romania to the Republic of Kazakhstan. Consequently, a new Board has been elected and mister Ionut Eriksen has been appointed as President.
We would like to express our gratitude towards His Excellency, mister Adrian Davidoiu, Ambassador of Romania to the Kingdom of Norway, who has offered NOROCC His unconditional support, as well as the support of the entire Embassy of Romania to the Kingdom of Norway.
The context is favourable for bilateral relations development, and we approach the moment when the Guide for applicants for the EEA Grants and Norway Grants will be launched.

Provisional Agenda for 2018
March 2018 Oslo Networking Event
May-June 2018 Bucharest, Cluj, Timișoara, Iași, Constanța Regional Meetings of NOROCC Members
