From China to Denmark  

- investment events show the way

2011.05.24

To become even stronger in global competition, more and more Chinese companies look abroad to invest in advanced technology, know-how and brands. One of the countries that experiences a growing Chinese interest is Denmark. Through a new series of events organized by Invest in Denmark, the international advisory houses KPMG, Eversheds and local partners, Chinese investors and businesses now get the opportunity to learn more about the possibilities in Denmark.

Despite its size, Denmark is a world leader within cleantech, life sciences and ICT. Good framework conditions and skilled labour make Denmark the perfect location for research & development and test, but Chinese companies also choose Denmark because of the easy access to the entire European market. Denmark is a genuine European hub location thanks to a well-developed infrastructure including airports, harbours, bridges and freeways.

“We experience an increasing interest in Danish companies working with technologies within infrastructure, cleantech or life sciences, as these are extremely important business areas in China at the moment,” says Ole Hedemann, partner and responsible for the China Desk Denmark at KPMG.

Investment events help Chinese companies

Still, there are always challenges when coming to a new country, because the culture and the framework conditions are different. Therefore, KPMG, Eversheds and the Danish government agency Invest in Denmark have gathered to make it easier for Chinese companies to establish in Denmark. A series of three events in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong will give potential Chinese investors and businesses knowledge about Danish key competencies, framework conditions, the labour market and more.

“When you consider investing in a foreign country, it is extremely important to have local allies. We know both China and Denmark and can assist with legal, financial and political advice,” says Nikolaj Juhl Hansen from the law firm Eversheds with offices in both Shanghai and Hong Kong.

Invest in Denmark has seven employees in China. “We are part of the Danish Foreign Ministry”, explains director of Invest in Denmark in China, Henrik Brandt Jensen, “and we help companies who would like to learn more about business opportunities in Denmark. All our services are free of charge.”

Chinese companies that are already present in Denmark include: Air China, BYD, Chempartner, Cheung Kong Holdings, COSCO, Envision, Mingyang, Lenovo, Huawei, OOCL, BGI and many more.

If you would like to know more about or attend the event, please contact investment manager Tom Hu at junlhu@um.dk . The event is held 31 May in Beijing, 1 June in Shanghai and 7 June in Hong Kong.
