National Budget 2017:
“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.

Meld. St. 12 (2012-2013)
The macroeconomic framework promotes a solid and stable development of the Norwegian economy. The Government Pension Fund Global helps to separate the earning of petroleum income from the use of that income, allowing the revenues to also benefit future generations.
Meld. St. 1 (2016 - 2017)
The Norwegian economy is improving. Growth is being supported by expansionary eco-nomic policy. Confidence indicators point to-wards continued growth. Both households and businesses are more optimistic about the future, and registered unemployment is falling in a ma-jority of Norway’s counties. Nonetheless, eco-nomic growth has been moderate thus far. Unem-ployment based on Statistics Norway’s labour force survey has risen, and employment growth has not kept up with population growth. However, the risk of a serious downturn in the Norwegian economy appears to be lower than last winter and spring.
