Many also want to establish their own business
in this country.


The interest for establishing new firms has increased by 30 per cent, according to
figures from the so-called Narvik Hotline.

This hotline was established by the Department for Industry and Trade for the use by
persons interested in starting their own business in Norway.

Most of the calls come from persons in Poland and the Baltic nations, and most of them want to establish firms within the building and construction industry.
