Norwegian business enterprises carried out research and development (R&D) for NOK 22.6 billion in 2013. This is an increase
of 6.7 per cent compared with 2012. A total of 16 683 R&D man-years were performed in 2013; 3.9 per cent more than in 2012.
External trade in goods, September 2014, preliminary figures
Imports in September amounted to NOK 50.1 billion; the second highest ever measured. Exports also increased and amounted to
NOK 71.7 billion; 7.7 per cent more than the same month last year. Higher prices for crude oil, natural gas and the most important
commodity groups contributed to this.
The GDP for 2011 will be revised upwards by around NOK 40 billion, or 1.5 per cent, when Statistics Norway publishes its revised
national accounts on 20 November. Moreover, all years will be subject to an upward revision, varying between 1.5 and 2 percent,
as a result of amendments to international guidelines.
