Norwegian Economic Outlook 2015

The EU Chambers of Commerce in Norway kindly invite members and guests to their annual Norwegian Economic Outlook. Frank Jullum, Danske Bankens Chief Economist will give his latest insight and analysis on the Norwegian Economic Outlook for 2015.

Oil prices have been halved since last summer. Which might be positive for the global economy. Meanwhile, for some countries, such as Norway, it results in a dramatic deterioration of the framework conditions. Interest cuts, weaker Norwegian currency and the oil fund-mechanisms will meanwhile dampen the negative effects from the lower oil price.
