Norway is Europe’s nethermost country, which has become known for its spectacular mountains and fjord coastline. Norwegians and residents of Norway enjoy some of the highest standards of living in the world. One major contributor to that was the discovery of offshore oil and gas deposits in the 1960s. Today crude petroleum and petroleum gas are responsible for over 50% of Norway’s economy, making it the largest producer outside of the Middle East.
Healthcare in Norway
Like the rest of the region, health care in Norway is government funded and decentralized, but some private health coverage and care coexist. The medical system is mainly public run and funded by municipal taxes. Dental care no not part of the public system, but is partially funded by the government. Medical facilities, staff and equipment in Norway are excellent and expats can enjoy impressive and prompt medical care in the country.
