Norwegian Risk Forum

”Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies attended the NRF 2011 conference; "Risks & Rewards for Norwegian Businesses in India". Kongsberg Group operates throughout the world with approximately 80% of its business outside Norway. As such corporate values, governance, compliance and responsibility are areas of priority and constant emphasis. We find NRCI's conferences (and their selection of topics and speakers)to provide indispensable value and insights into these increasingly important topics.”
