This is the Chamber of Commerce

The Stavanger region’s Chamber of Commerce is the country’s largest and our vision is to be the most value-creating association through growth and well-being.

We promote business interests in the Stavanger-region to ensure that the region has the merits to attract people to live and work here. We do this by being member-oriented, community-aware actors as well as being an attractive cooperative partner.  We focus on the region's business life through our member meetings, our business magazine "Rosenkilden" and through digital communication via newsletters and the internet. The Chamber of Commerce participates in different fora for those who work with business and political issues.

The Stavanger Chamber of Commerce and Industry has set out goals to deal with the following issues:

  • Effective regionalisation  
  • Competitive Infrastructure
  • Targeted Competency Building
  • Attractive business and political framework
