Norway has entered a soft patch, due to weakened confidence and subdued exports, which is expected to persist through mid-2012. The economy will subsequently resume its robust expansion as confidence returns. Consumer price inflation has remained low, reflecting moderate rises in unit labour costs and import prices, but the acceleration of output will lift it somewhat by the end of the projection period. The unemployment rate is likely to remain stable, as increasing labour demand will be met by continued high net immigration.
