  • The Economist Intelligence Unit

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.

Although Norway faces long-term problems because of its falling birth rate and ageing population, the country's demographic profile will be comparatively favourable in the short to medium term. With the anti-immigration Progress Party in government, debate about whether to continue to allow in large numbers of refugees and other non-European immigrants is likely to feature prominently on the political agenda. However, immigration from the European Economic Area (EEA) is likely to persist.

Annual GDP growth is forecast to average 3% in 2014-18, above the EU average. Growth will continue to be supported by private consumption and petroleum investment. READ MORE >
