Norwegian job market is looking up
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.
