Ministry of Finance

The Ministry of Finance is responsible for planning and implementing the Norwegian economic policy and for coordinating the work with the Fiscal Budget.

Current

Revised Fiscal Budget 2015:

A budget to promote growth and structural adjustment

The sharp oil price decline since last year is dampening growth in the Norwegian economy. Growth in the mainland (or non-oil) economy is set to be moderate in 2015, and some competitive businesses must adapt to lower demand from the Norwegian petroleum sector. These adjustments are likely to happen earlier than previously anticipated due to the oil price decline.

The Government Pension Fund:

Further development of the management of the Government Pension Fund

– Norges Bank and Folketrygdfondet have managed the Government Pension Fund Global and the Government Pension Fund Norway, respectively, in a sound manner over time. We will build on that. In this report, the Government proposes new steps to further develop the investment strategy of the two funds, says the Minister of Finance, Siv Jensen.
