A Taste of TrysilWelcome to Trysil
The Norwegian economy is a prosperous mixed economy, with a private sector, a large state sector, and an extensive social safety net, due to the findings of oil and gas. Norway is the world's second-largest natural gas exporter; and seventh largest oil exporter. Norway opted to stay out of the EU during a referendum in November 1994; nonetheless, as a member of the European Economic Area, it contributes sizably to the EU budget, and thats the reason why we can take part in these Comenius projects. Economy slowed in 2008, but have returned to positive growth now.
In Trysil we have some economic challenges due to a high number of old people and few new-borns.
