Marketing Norway to the world for more than 50 years

Business Region Stavanger
The Greater Stavanger region has always looked to the sea, a gateway to the world. Some say that Norway’s history actually began here, with the first settlers arriving in small boats when the last ice age ended 10,000 years ago. Now, as one of the largest and most important business and residential regions in Norway, the region has nearly 300,000 inhabitants working in a wide spectrum of careers.


With plentiful natural resources, successful companies and dynamic infrastructure; the talented, experienced and friendly people enjoy a high quality of life and career opportunities here in Greater Stavanger.
 
No story about the Stavanger Region could be complete without telling of its role in Norway’s oil adventure that began in 1969 with the discovery of oil in the southern North Sea field, Ekofisk. Since then, the town has developed into Norway’s undisputed petroleum capital, with 45,000 people being employed within this sector. This number represents approximately 20% of the workforce in Rogaland county – and equally impressive, accounting for nearly 50% of all employed in petroleum activities here in the country.
 
Still, the region is certainly much more than successful business activities; it is a center of creativity, culinary arts, and culture. In 2008, the region was awarded the ultimate recognition for its burgeoning cultural industries: designation by the European Union as a European Capital of Culture.
 
It this issue you will then find a brief overview of the most important Norwegian organizations as well as a series of articles to give you more in-depth understanding of the present focus and activities. In the second half of the magazine you will find cutting-edge companies.
