NHO’s latest financial barometer survey shows that many Norwegian business leaders are pessimistic about the coming months.

In total, 18% of 3,014 surveyed business leaders expect the market situation to worsen over the next six to twelve months, according to newspaper VG, which has seen the financial barometer results for the third quarter.

That is the second-lowest figure since the survey started in 2009. 

The only period with more pessimism was the second quarter of this year when large parts of Norway were closed down. At that time, a total of 26% responded that they expect the situation to worsen. 

Jobs at risk

“Unfortunately, we experience that people are under the impression that the crisis is coming to an end. 

Even though hairdressers and others who lost their jobs this spring are back at work, important markets are still completely down. 

We fear that thousands of jobs, which will not return, will disappear in the coming year,” NHO head Ole Erik Almlid told the newspaper.
