Norway - Current Account (billions of U.S. Dollars)

Norway’s total GDP growth accelerated modestly in Q2, after flatlining in Q1. A pick-up in domestic demand was chiefly behind the headline figure—driven by a hefty expansion in fixed investment, which more than offset softer household spending growth. Conversely, exports continued to contract on a sharp downturn in exports of vessels, oil platforms and aircrafts. Turning to Q3, growth will likely continue to gain momentum. Total GDP data for July posted the strongest month-on-month expansion since June 2018. However, a surge in investment—mainly in the petroleum industry—somewhat flattered the print, as private consumption declined due to a steep fall in motor vehicle and petrol sales. Nevertheless, the economy should receive a boost from increased public spending in H2, while a weaker krone in recent months should boost export competitiveness and support foreign demand.
