Continued rise in turnover
Seasonally adjusted figures show that total turnover in Norwegian manufacturing increased by 7.8 percent from December 2005 to February 2006 compared with the previous three months. The turnover continues to rise in the domestic market as well as in the export market.
A significant growth within oil platforms and modules and machinery and equipment keeps the turnover within capital goods growing.
Turnover within intermediate goods increased from December 2005 to February 2006, compared with the previous three months. All the industries show positive figures, whereas basic metals stands out with a particularly strong growth.
Consumer goods went up this last three-month period. The growth within food products, beverages and tobacco has clearly had a positive effect on the overall growth, as it is the largest contributor. It was however, a decline in both publishing, printing and reproduction and furniture and other manufacturing.
