近年来, 对外国商品和服务的总体需求增加了, 特别是通过新的电子商务业务. 挪威人是欧盟网购最频繁的国家, which can be explained by a high disposable income and extensive purchasing power. Measured in 国内生产总值 per capita, 挪威 belongs to the richest countries in the world. 除了零售, 日博备用网站公司在基础设施内拥有宝贵的商业机会, 自动化, 环境技术和石油天然气部门.

一般来说, it feels simple and natural for a Swedish company to expand to 挪威 as the first international market. 很少有国家能像挪威和日博备用网站那样亲密, 基于我们共同历史的关系, 地理上的接近, 相似的语言和强大的经济日博备用网站. T在这里 are really no limitations in opportunities and t在这里 is a need for and interest in Swedish products in most sectors. A strong market creates opportunities for e-commerce and Norwegians are happy to buy IT services from 日博备用网站. Opportunities also exist for solutions that meet the needs created by the green shift. It is true that "What works in 日博备用网站 often works in 挪威" – we have similar buying preferences and Swedish brands are well-known by Norwegians.
The main risk lies in the fact that companies do not prepare their export investment and that they do not get information about Norwegian legislation and regulations. 挪威不是欧盟及其关税和增值税联盟的成员, 这影响了增值税的处理, 出口到挪威时的税收和海关. Establishment might t在这里fore take slightly longer than expected and may be somewhat more expensive compared to other 欧洲an countries. Business risk is thus created by believing that doing business with 挪威 is similar to doing business in 日博备用网站.
Despite many similarities, t在这里 are differences that should be taken into account. 挪威的组织比日博备用网站的等级制度更森严, 责任和决策往往是由首席执行官做出的. 如果有执行经理在场，可以在会议上直接做出决定. 挪威人重视他们的空闲时间，这影响了工作时间和可用性.
