Slik gjør du vellykkede investeringer i Baltikum

I samarbeid med Europabevegelsen i Bergen/Hordaland, EY, Innovasjon Norge, Litauisk-Norsk Handelskammer og ambassadene for Estland, Latvia og Litauen inviterer vi til møte om muligheter i Baltikum.

Fredag 25. september kl 08:30 – 10:00
Grand Bergen, Nedre Ole Bulls plass

De baltiske landene har de siste årene hatt en betydelig større økonomisk vekst enn de «gamle» EU-landene, og flere norske bedrifter har for lengst oppdaget Estland, Latvia og Litauen både som markeder og land det er gunstig å outsorce oppgaver til. De tre baltiske landene representerer et utvidet hjemmemarked med lange og dype felles kulturelle og historiske røtter med de skandinaviske landene.

Selv om der er forskjeller, representer de tre baltiske landene også felles muligheter som det bergenske næringslivet må bli bedre kjent med. Derfor er det med glede vi vil presentere muligheter i alle tre land.

Program

08:15 Registrering og frokost

08:30 The Baltic’s- bringing more business opportunities for Norway
