NRF 2012 addressed a number of relevant topics, which companies and investors considering the Brazilian market need to be aware of. With a population of nearly 200 million, vast oil resources, great diversity and a booming industry and consumer markets, Brazil emerges as a highly interesting market. NRF 2012 provided a crucial meeting venue for those who sought to connect with relevant contacts and prepare their entry into the Brazilian market. Those who already have a presence in Brazil got updated and on relevant and pressing issues and could further develop their network with relevant contacts in Norway focusing on Brazil.

The Norwegian Risk Forum Dinner at Grand Café, which is now already a tradition at the annual NRF conferences allowed for longer conversations and a social gathering, which provided an excellent opportunity for all the participants to join in an exclusive and intimate setting. Indeed, Norwegian Risk Forum is now established as the leading international conference focusing on political risk for Norwegian businesses and investors seeking to invest in emerging markets worldwide.
