Growing investments in manufacturing
Estimates for 2005 indicate a higher level of investments than in 2004. The manufacturing industry is the main driving force behind this development. Estimates for 2006 indicate further growth.
Total investments in 2005 in manufacturing, mining and quarrying and electricity supply are expected to come to approximately NOK 29.3 billion, measured in current prices. This is a 7 per cent increase compared with the corresponding figures for 2004. A high investment level in the food products and basic chemicals sectors is the main driving force behind this development. Estimates for 2006 indicate further investment growth due to expectations of a significant rise in investments in manufacturing and electricity supply.
