OSLO, June 20 (Reuters) - Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg said there are 'worrying' signs in the country's otherwise resilient economy and the government must be prepared with measures to fend off the slowdown.
'We are now seeing signs that the financial crisis is impacting the Norwegian economy,' Stoltenberg told a news conference. 'We see signs of higher unemployment, exports to Europe are falling somewhat and manufacturing investment is falling.'
