WEBINAR - Export2Europe: Doing Business in the Nordics

Time: 12:00 pm/noon ET (9:00am PT)

Join the U.S. Commercial Service to learn about market opportunities for several industries in the Nordic region. The Nordics is a highly developed and high income region of 27 million people with a combined GDP of over $1.5 trillion and an average GDP per capita of $55,000 making this a prosperous market for a wide range of products. Norway, for example, has the third highest GDP per capita in the world at over $74,000 while also ranking in the top three countries in human development. Learn from our experts at the American embassies who will offer market overviews and practical advice to U.S. exporters looking to do business in the region. As well as highlighting economic and commercial trends and opportunities in the Nordics, this webinar will identify key projects.

Why Denmark?

Denmark is a rich, modern society with state-of-the-art infrastructure and distribution systems, a highly skilled labor force, and a central location that makes it an excellent distribution point for the Scandinavian, Northern European, and Baltic markets. The “flexicurity” system helps adjust to shocks while limiting the social cost of unemployment and the risk that it could become entrenched.

Why Finland?

This $250 billion economy and its immensely innovative culture ranks 3rd in the EU Digital Economy and Societal Index, 7th in the Global Innovation Index, and in the world's top 3 strongest health technology economies. Pioneering companies the world over meet here to spearhead the next generation in ICT (including 5G), eHealth, energy, cleantech, Smart Cities, and other knowledge-based growth industries. If you seek a lucrative export market, an ideal testbed, and partners eager to build your solutions into the DNA of the next global breakthrough, be sure to check out Finland!

Why Norway?

Norway is a modern, energy-rich country with 5.3 million people. Norway is considered one of the world's wealthiest countries with a GDP per capita based on purchasing power parities (PPP) exceeding USD 70,000. Norway is not a member of the European Union (EU), but is linked to the EU through the European Economic Area (EEA) agreement. By virtue of the EEA, Norway is practically part of the EU's single market, except in fisheries and agriculture.

Why Sweden?

Over 1,300 U.S. companies are present in Sweden, and Sweden is the top location in the Nordics for regional coverage. The United States is Sweden's largest trading partner outside of the EU. In 2017, U.S. merchandise exports to Sweden were valued at $3.73 billion and imports were $10.74 billion. The U.S. exported $5.9 billion in services to Sweden in 2016 and imported $3.1 billion, a trade surplus of $2.8 billion.
