A budget for economic growth, job creation, and a sustainable welfare state

In the fiscal budget for 2018, the use of petroleum revenues will therefore increase more slowly than in recent years. The Government prioritisesgrowth-promoting tax reductions and a continued focus on education, transport, health, and welfare at the local level.

Report to the Storting (white paper)

The purpose of the Government Pension Fund is to support long-term considerations in the government’s spending of petroleum revenues, as well as savings to finance pension expenditure under the National Insurance Scheme. Sound long-term management will help ensure that Norway’s petroleum wealth can benefit both current and future generations. The Government Pension Fund comprises the Government Pension Fund Global (GPFG) and the Government Pension Fund Norway (GPFN). The funds are managed by Norges Bank and Folketrygdfondet, respectively, under mandates laid down by the Ministry of Finance.
