The Norwegian forest industry group Norske Skog said on Friday (22 September) that the group's corporate assembly has approved the board's plan to carry out a profit improvement plan.

"An important part of the plan is a de-manning program targeted to reduce the number of employees by some 1,000. The largest cuts in relative terms will affect administrative functions, but the mills will also see considerable reductions," Norske Skog said in a brief announcement.
