The Conservatives (H), the Liberals (V), and the Christian Democrats (KRF) want to, among other things, reduce the wealth tax on working capital and ensure 100% broadband coverage by 2025 if they win the election.

The plan, designed to speed up Norway after the corona crisis, help create jobs, and include more people in working life, was launched at a joint press conference on Tuesday.

Prime Minister Erna Solberg (H) noted that five of the ten measures aim to make it easier for people to try their hand at working life.

“The other five points are about creating more private jobs,” Solberg noted.

Among other things, the parties want to introduce a new entrepreneurial leave, award licenses for several offshore wind projects, reduce the wealth tax on working capital, and ensure 100% coverage of broadband throughout the country by 2025.

The parties also want to renew, simplify, and improve the NAV and try new schemes such as health-adjusted pay. In addition, they announced that they plan to introduce a sibling discount for families who have children in both kindergarten and after-school care and prioritize young people at the NAV.
