Three-month change: turnover slightly down

Seasonally-adjusted figures show that the total turnover in Norwegian manufacturing decreased by 0.6 per cent from March to May 2016 compared to the previous three-month period. However, some of the industrial sectors showed notable negative changes. Machinery and equipment and fabricated metal products fell 9.5 and 6.1 per cent respectively.

• Refined petroleum products, basic chemicals, and chemical and pharmaceutical products

• Building of ships, boats and oil platforms

• Computer and electrical equipment

• Rubber, plastic and mineral products
