Some countries in the world are more developed then others and there are different reason for that. Some are simply lucky to have Oil and other natural resources while others achieved everything with their bare hands. Japan is a good example of a country with no great area, with almost no natural resources, with huge population and very good economy despite everything. However, there are countries which are able to combine these two factors. They are partly lucky to have what is needed at the moment and what is so expensive and on the other hand smart enough to benefit from it in the best possible way and to invest the money that they made in things that will be helpful to them later on.
Norway is one of the examples of how a small country can become rich because of all these things. In the mid 20th century Norway was far behind the other countries in Europe. Then the oil was discovered and the economy was boosted. The fishing is another part of the industry which is very important for the country and its people. This industry is traditional for Norway and it has great markets all over the world. Thanks to the money from the oil, the fishing became even bigger part of the economy.
The woods are another major reason why Norway is so rich. The wood from here is with high quality and the lands where the forests are actually not getting smaller but bigger. The constant policy of the country to plant new trees helps a lot.
The education, the travel industry and all the other important things for any other country are here also. Actually, as a tourist destination Norway is well known. The great fiords are something threat cruise ships from all over the world show to their passengers. Some of the people on the ships spend a night in local hotels and experience the wild beauty of Norway. If you want to do all that, you need to make a reservation in advance because you may hardly find place during the main season. In order to save time, make some calls to Norway and see if the place is actually hosting at the moment. If it does, make a reservation and go there. You will never regret for that. It is amazing.
So, this is Norway and if you want to learn more about it, go there!
