The ruling right-of-centre minority government, which comprises the Conservatives and the Progress Party, will receive parliamentary support from two smaller centrist parties, the Liberals and the Christian Democrats. The centrist parties opted not to join the coalition formally (largely because of concern about a coalition with the Progress Party). However, their presence will constrain any significant alterations to the existing policy framework, which The Economist Intelligence Unit expects to remain moderate and centrist.

Norway's demographic profile is deteriorating, with the proportion of the population aged over 65 expected to climb to 17% in 2018. This is in line with most developed countries, but is nonetheless better than many of Norway's European competitors.

Annual real GDP growth is forecast to slow in 2015 as lower international oil prices and continuing weakness in the euro zone have a negative impact on Norway's economy. In particular, investment and imports can be expected to slow next year. The general government budget and current-account balances will stay comfortably in surplus, underpinned by oil and gas export earnings.
