AmCham proudly presents Foreign Multinationals in Norway, an in-depth analysis of the economic impact and contributions of foreign-owned enterprises in Norway, available in both English and Norwegian. The report was jointly commissioned by AmCham Norway and Abelia, and was authored by Steinar Leknessund (Perceptor) and Espen Kvalheim (Nard). It was made possible by AIG, Pfizer, and other AmCham and Abelia member companies.
Despite constituting only 1.4% of all entities in Norway, multinational companies are responsible for approximately 20% of private sector employment (2017).
Just as with employment, foreign multinationals also make an outsized contribution in regard to revenue generation.
*The recently released SSB article “USA investerer stort i Norge via andre land” notes US entities were behind 20% of all FDI into Norway in 2018, if one takes into account instances were US companies routed investments through other countries.
