Foreign Commercial Service
The U.S. Embassy Commercial Service offices in the Nordics (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden), together with our partner posts in the Baltics (Estonia and Latvia), assist local companies and investors that seek products or services from U.S. companies. Our offices do this by sourcing through over 100 of the district offices in the U.S., in every major city, with industry sector teams in the U.S. and in Europe, and by assisting local delegations at major networking events in Europe and the U.S. If you are searching for products or partners in the U.S., send our office email address a short note with your company contact information, and we will do our best to assist.
For U.S. Companies
Welcome to the Sweden Foreign Commercial Service office in the Nordic/Baltic Region.
The Nordic Region (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden) together with partner posts in the Baltic's (Estonia and Latvia), is a large and sophisticated marketplace, comparable to Canada in combined GDPs, and considered worldwide to be a excellent test market for new products and an easy-to-enter market for new-to-market (NTM) companies. English is widely understood, business agreements are reliable, and commuting within the Nordics is easy to do.
The Nordic countries have close ties to the United States culturally and historically (chances are Eric the Red or his son Leif Ericson visited North America over 1000 years ago). Excellent opportunities for US businesses exist in this market-diverse area, from offshore oil and gas equipment for Norway, to high-value healthcare and new consumer products for Sweden, and for all countries, clean-tech solutions that reduce fossil fuels and greenhouse gases.
Our offices and partner posts in these Nordic-Baltic countries offer a unique opportunity for U.S. companies that want a region-wide program. We package simple, affordable programs, market research, and executive appointments that fit your company products and market dynamics and that help gain market access to some or all Nordic countries. Recent visits of Commercial Service clients using the Nordic regional Plan for appointments have reported excellent results.
