Press conference 16 February 2017:

Increased equity share in the Government Pension Fund Global and adjustment to the expected rate of return in the fiscal policy guidelines

The government has today made two decisions significant to the management of the Government Pension Fund Global (GPFG) and to fiscal policy. The government will submit to parliament a recommendation to increase the equity share in the fund to 70 per cent. The government will also propose a downwards revision of the expected real rate of return of the fund from 4 per cent to 3 per cent. This estimate is important in the fiscal policy guidelines.

National Budget 2017:

A budget to promote employment, welfare, and security

“Norway will emerge stronger from the challenging restructuring the economy now experiences. The Budget for 2017 contains targeted measures to counteract unemployment in the regions and industries that are hardest hit by the drop in oil prices. The Budget for 2017 is a budget for more jobs, better welfare, and a safe life," says Minister of Finance Siv Jensen.
