Growing activity within electricity supply
The first estimates for 2004 indicate a decline in the level of investment within manufacturing, while the estimates for electricity supply show opposite signs. This is a continuation of the tendency for the current year.
Recorded estimates for 2003, reported throughout the second quarter, seem to confirm the results from the previous survey. Total investments covering manufacturing, mining and quarrying and electricity supply are expected to amount to about NOK 19.5 billion, measured in current value. This is a 12 per cent decrease compared with corresponding figures in 2002. The effect of lower estimates for investments within manufacturing is somewhat reduced by higher estimates for investments within electricity supply.
Estimates for 2004 covering manufacturing, mining and quarrying and electricity supply are 3 per cent lower than the corresponding figures for 2003. A lower level of investments within manufacturing seems more or less to be levelled out by an increase in investments within electricity supply.
