The Oslo region has experienced a strong growth in population and employment in the past and the growth is concentrated in specific areas. A densification has taken place in central parts of Oslo and in the outskirt of the city growth has been concentrated along transport corridors. The transport infrastructure in the Oslo region is in general of good quality. A relatively high share travel by foot, bicycle and public transport. The region also has a dynamic economy in which high-productive knowledge-intensive business services play a significant role. However, due to strong growth also in low-productive industries, value creation per employee is lower than expected. That is a challenge for the industrial policy ahead and for achieving the aim of urban competitiveness and sustainability.
