Trade Figures for Full Year 2023 Released by Norway Connect

Trade Figures for Full Year 2023 Released by Norway ConnectTrade Figures for Full year 2023 Released by Norway Connect

Norway Connect, our premium member, has shared trade statistics for Full year 2023. Full years 2019-2022 are included for comparative reasons.

Seafood exports to Thailand are down by 4% as compared to the same period last year, while fertilisers are down by 10%. The high figure in import from Thailand is due to Aibel Thailand exporting another Doggerbank module in May. That one module was NOK 1,242 million alone.

Looking at tourism to Norway, it’s also good to see that number of Thai room nights in Norway are improving. October was a record month with over 5,000 room nights (against 8,500 in 2019). Room nights are now 105% over last year and if we exclude December, which is not yet in, we are 123% above 2022. Northern Norway is the region that is showing the biggest increase with 133% over 2022.

Export from Norway for 2023 is split like this:

  • Seafood 57%           NOK 2,693 million
  • Fertilisers 22%         NOK 1,046 million
  • Other goods 21%     NOK 997 million
  • Total                         NOK 4,736 million (=-4%) vs export from Thailand NOK 6,248 million (+16%)
