Dag Terje Andersen (born 27 May 1957 in Frogn, Akershus) is a Norwegian politician for the Norwegian Labour Party. In addition to professional politics he has worked at a steel mill and as a lumberjack, something that has given him a reputation for politically representing the average citizen.

He was elected into the Norwegian parliament (Storting) as a representative from Vestfold in 1997, and he was re-elected in the 2005, 2009 and 2013 elections.

Andersen was the Mayor of Lardal from 1987 to 1992. He was at first a political advisor at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs before he became State Secretary at the Ministry of Social Affairs in 1992. He was a party secretary for the Norwegian Labour Party from 1992 until 1996.

In 1996 he became Minister of Agriculture, remaining in that post for slightly less than a year. Andersen later became Minister of Trade and Industry on 29 September 2006, when Odd Eriksen resigned.

From 2009 to 2013, Andersen served as President of the Storting.
