The gross domestic product (GDP) of mainland Norway (excluding the largely petroleum-based offshore sector) grew by 0.3 per
cent in the third quarter of 2018. The drought in the summer caused a pronounced decrease in agricultural output, which lowered
mainland growth by 0.2 percentage points.
Norwegian manufacturing output saw a marginal increase of 0.6 per cent from the second to the third quarter of 2018, according
to seasonally-adjusted figures. The increase is among others due to high building of ships and platforms. On a month to month
basis, from August to September, output was more or less unchanged.
Seasonally-adjusted figures showed that the total turnover in Norwegian manufacturing increased by 1.9 per cent from the second
to the third quarter of 2018. A 2.2 per cent increase was recorded from August to September.
