D/J -50...

...Getting to know Norway

So as you know by now we are moving to Norway (see D/J -100 post!). Norway land of Ericsson, ah no they are Swedish, H&M no Swedish also…

I know that they have oil but what other big name industries do they have?

Ericsson (communication), Electrolux (appliances), Ikea (furniture), H&M (clothing), Volvo (car), Brio (wooden toys), AGA (cooker), Tele2 (telecommunication operator), Husqvarna (chainsaw), MySQL (database management) are all Swedish. Even Nokia is Finnish (and Fiskars too!)

So I guess it all comes down to oil, fishing and hosting the 1997 winter Olympics (Lillehammer, remember).
