Business leaders fear new government

A survey among 530 directors, and sales and marketing executives shows widespread fear of the new socialist government. Over 75% expect businesses in Norway to face tougher regulation. And there is more:
  • 58% think it will be harder to do business
  • 70% think competitiveness will worsen
  • 45% expect profits to detoriate
