The presented plan is an unprecedented incentive for the Norwegian armed forces in the history of the country, it involves a significant strengthening of all kinds of defense,” said the Norwegian. Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre.

In total, the Norwegian government will spend NOK 1.624 billion on Norwegian defense over the next 12 years. During that time, the defense budget will be almost twice as large as it is today.
