Norwegian Risk Forum 2015
October 22
Grand Hotel, Oslo

Risks and Rewards for Foreign Investors in Mexico

Norwegian Risk Forum 2015 examined business opportunities and political and security risks in Mexico. With a population of 125 million people Mexico provides an important bridge between North and South America. With President Nieto’s new oil reform in Mexico we expect an increased presence of international oil companies and offshore entities transforming and opening up the oil industry. Simultaneously, Mexico continues its internal struggle with organized crime and mafia gangs exposing security risks on several levels.

Central America stands at the doorstep of a new era with a new Transoceanic Atlantic-Pacific canal planned through Nicaragua and the upgrade of the Panama Canal enabling larger ships. Central America strengthens its regional role as a trans-shipment supply epicenter. However with these mega-infrastructure channels we expect a range of risks and business opportunities to follow suit and Central America’s challenges with mafia and drug cartels and narcotics traffics continue to impact Mexico.

NRF 2015 gathered experts and business leaders who examine business opportunities and how security and political risks may impact business operations and investments. With a combination of presentations, panel debates, a group session and intimate and extended networking sessions you gain relevant and hands-on insights to fine-tune your business plans.

The Norwegian Risk Forum Dinner at Palmen Restaurant enabled longer conversations and a social gathering in an intimate and exclusive atmosphere. This provided an excellent opportunity for participants to get to know each other better and build valuable relationships for future endeavors.

NRF 2015 was the 6th annual Norwegian Risk Forum.
