Inn Bergen - at your service

Moving to a foreign country and settling down in a new city becomes much easier when you have someone to help you. Not surprisingly, Bergen is an attractive destination for these many temporary or permanent employees who relocate from other countries. Reasons for this include the booming national economy, in addition to the fact that it is just a great place to live – the United Nations Human Development Report has rated Norway the best place to live for the sixth straight year.

 Surveys conducted by Bergen Chamber of Commerce and Industry shows that there is a great need to recruit qualified personnel to the Bergen region. The Bergen region is the second largest business area in Norway, with a wide variety of industries and services. The companies in the region are attracting the best expertise available form other regions in Norway, and from abroad. This often means relocating international employees. In order to facilitate the conditions for new workers in the Bergen region, the Bergen Chamber of Commerce and Industry established the International Network Bergen (INN Bergen).
