New figures from Statistics Denmark show that Danish drug exports increased by 13% in 2005 to DKK 37 bn (USD 5.9 bn). Since 2000, drug exports have grown by DKK 13 bn (USD 2.1 bn). Jan Hylleberg, deputy director of the Danish Association of the Pharmaceutical Industry says that Danish companies have targeted some highly profitable areas:

"The drugs that are produced and exported from Denmark are targeted at some interesting treatment areas including diabetes, depression and skin diseases, which more and more people in the world will suffer from", Jan Hylleberg says.

The solid export figures reflect the pharmaceutical area's growing importance for the Danish economy according to the Confederation of Danish Industries (DI). Hans Uldall-Poulsen, consultant at DI says: "Danish companies are producing efficient and well-documented drugs". The success of the pharmaceutical industry in Denmark is based on good collaboration with public health institutions, especially during the product development stage, Hans Uldall-Poulsen adds. The news was reported by Industriens Dagblad.
