Our federation is part of the overall Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise (NHO).
As such, it is the largest association within the NHO with 25 percent of the total employees (full time equivalents) in NHO member companies.
The federation represents around 3000 member companies with approx. 127,500 employees. Member companies’ interests are our main focus. The Federation of Norwegian Industries engages in the most important industrial and business policy issues of the day.
Our most important task is to ensure that society understands how important a viable industry is for our future welfare.
Thus, the Federation’s most important task is to ensure that the authorities adopt a long-term fiscal policy and framing conditions for a competitive Norwegian industry. Important issues are stable, safe and high activity, increased activity towards international projects, conditions to secure and achieve sustainable business, technology, competence and R&D as well as positive profiling the industry.
