Industrial production falls in December for second consecutive month

According to Statistics Norway, industrial production fell a seasonally-adjusted 1.0% in December compared to the previous month, less than the 1.5% contraction in November. The decrease in December was due to another output fall in the extraction and related services sector, the largest industrial sector in Norway.
