Significant growth in investments
New estimates for 2007 show considerable growth in investments within manufacturing and electricity supply. Estimates for 2008 indicate an even higher level of investment than in the current year.
Total investments in 2007 covering manufacturing, mining and quarrying and electricity supply are expected to amount to about NOK 40 billion - measured in current value. This is 23 per cent higher than the corresponding figures for 2006.
The combined effect of a general increase in the level of investment and a few major investment projects explains this result. Estimates for 2008 are significantly higher than the corresponding figures for 2007, but there is a considerable degree of uncertainty related to estimates given at such an early stage.
