Norway Industry Confidence at 2.30 Index Points


Norwegian industrial confidence index fell to 2.3 in the third quarter of 2017 from a downwardlly revised 3.7 in the previous period. The decline was due to a drop in the production of consumer goods, as lower output was seen for food and beverage industry. Meantime, manufacturers of capital goods were showing signs of improvement and the reduction in output was leveling off. At the same time, the output of intermediate goods increased. Employment was more or less unchanged. Producers of intermediate goods reported some increase in employment while there was still a decline for producers of capital goods. General outlook for the coming quarter is positive, as industry leaders report that investment plans are adjusted upwards and new orders from both the domestic market and export market are expected to increase. The total stock of orders is also expected to increase. Meanwhile, employment will see a further drop.
