Officials predict Norway jobless rise

Amongst record numbers of working Norwegians come forecasts of an increase in unemployment.



A fresh forecast from the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV) shows an extra 5,000 people will be without a job in 2012.

 “It’s especially traditional industries that will experience a slight slowdown in growth and face some challenges,” says director Joakim Lystad to NRK.

The broadcaster reports current EU financial uncertainty will hit hardest for those working in sectors dependant on the foreign market, such as transport and tourism, and manufacturing.

According to The Norwegian United Federation of Trade Unions (Fellesforbundet), 800 people have been laid off in the industrial sector, and 2,500 members are unemployed.

Nevertheless, oil-rich Norway will also see a sharp rise in the number of available jobs next year and in 2013, predicts NAV.

Recent Statistics Norway figures show unemployment amongst immigrants is dropping, and more foreigners will be needed to fill vacancies until 2014.

A growing economy may also mean current Norwegian gloom about their personal economy is turned around.

“There are constantly many people who stop being unemployed in Norway, which puts the country in a unique position,” says Mr Lystad, who believes numbers of jobless people will fall in 2013 again.
