A very important thing we need to remember about is the fact that in spite of close relations with the EU, Norway is not a member of it on its full rights. However, when compared with other EU nations, they can boast with quite attractive GDP. In 2019, it was around $357 billion. It makes them the second most prosperous nation in Scandinavia only behind Sweden.
