Scandinavia - an interesting market - infrastructure, energy etc.
Railways, housing, roads and airports are among infrastructure projects that are leading to growth in Scandinavia and the Nordic region.
Big infrastructure projects are usually a sign of growth, and this means Scandinavia is in an enviable position. Housing, roads, airports, railways, and even a town, are high on the construction agenda, and such investments are always good news for the aggregates industry.
Most of the national economies are also looking good, with growth in the three kingdoms that make up Scandinavia – Denmark, Norway, and Sweden – and in the Faroe Islands (a Danish overseas territory) along with Nordic neighbours Iceland and Finland.
