Core Views

* We continue to expect a slowdown in oil sector investment, an uncompetitive export sector, and a cooling residential real estate sector to weigh on Norwegian GDP growth in 2014-15.
* The residential housing market has been a major contributor to overall real GDP growth for most of the past decade, but is set to cool over the next few years. While we have not yet seen signs of a full-blown housing crash, real estate prices have faltered, and we will be vigilant for signs of a more pronounced correction in the coming quarters.
* We believe that the newly-elected Conservative-Progress minority coalition government is unlikely to agitate for major changes in policy in the new future.

Key Forecast Changes

* We have lowered our 2014 real GDP growth forecast for Norway to 1.6% from 1.7%, and our 2015 forecast to 1.9% from 2.1% previously.
