Norwegian job market is looking up

Strong economic growth predicted to add 70,000 new jobs to the Norwegian economy through 2012.

Strong economic growth predicted to add 70,000 new jobs to the Norwegian economy through 2012.

The Norwegian Labor and Welfare Service (NAV) predicts 70,000 new jobs will be created in 2011 and 2012. NAV  bases its prediction on the very strong economic growth in Norway.

Most of the new jobs will be found in health and social services, building and construction, oil-related industries, and in the hotel and restaurant business, NAV predicts.

The previously expected increase in the nation’s unemployment has therefore been canceled, NAV says. Instead, NAV now predicts a decline in unemployment from last year till this year.
