Your business is NACC MA’s business. NACC MA is becoming the leading Mid-Atlantic Norwegian-American business and resource center for promotion and development of trade and commercial activities between Norway and the U.S. Mid-Atlantic Region.

The creation of new business opportunities is important to expand economic activities that can benefit US Mid-Atlantic and Norwegian business communities and members of our organization. The resource center is working to connect with state, regional, local, public, and private organizations and companies in both countries to create common business interests and sustainable economic growth.

It is our goal to bring US and Norwegian public and private business development organizations, small and large businesses, and investors in both countries together, and to assist in market integration, business partnerships, and joint ventures.
