Trade Balance in Norway

Norway Trade Balance | Economic News & Forecasts

Norway - Trade Balance

The economy shrank at the fastest pace since Q3 2010 in the first quarter, as a preliminary GDP reading projected an unprecedented contraction in March. Containment measures weighed heavily on domestic demand in the quarter—private consumption was estimated to have plunged at the steepest pace on record—while frail global demand for oil and gas weighed heavily on energy exports. The economy should remain depressed in the second quarter as the energy sector reels from Norway's first mandated cuts to crude oil production in 18 years, which is expected to begin in June. Moreover, household spending should continue to decrease as newly registered unemployed has surged in recent months. That said, the government is gradually loosening lockdown measures and roughly 90% of those newly unemployed workers are considered to be temporarily laid-off, which could spark a strong rebound as the economy reopens.
