The Nordic Business Council of the Philippines, Inc. (NBCP) is a Filipino registered non-stock, non-profit organization that promotes and facilitates trade, commerce, industry, and investment between the Philippines and the Nordic (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden) and Baltic (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania) countries. The NBCP was established in late 2012 to fill a void that had been created by Nordic embassies (excluding Norway) and trade promotion organizations leaving the Philippines. We strongly felt that a there was a need to form a business support organization to serve the Nordic business community in the Philippines, and to help bringing in more Nordic investments to create jobs and to fuel the growth of the Philippine economy. By acting together as a Nordic group, the NBCP creates synergy and a louder voice than a business council formed by any individual Nordic country. We also have a close working relationship with existing chambers of commerce and business organizations in the Philippines, such as the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines, Philippines Norway Business Council, Philippines-Finland Business Council.
