“This thoroughly modern market economy features a high-tech agricultural sector, state-of-the-art industry with world-leading firms in pharmaceuticals, maritime shipping and renewable energy, and a high dependence on foreign trade.”
The global economic crisis hasn’t left Denmark entirely untouched, but Denmark's fiscal position remains among the strongest in the EU and Forbes concludes that “with its business-friendly climate, the country is poised to rebound stronger than most of Europe.”
Nicholas Enersen, Team Leader at Invest in Denmark confirms that foreign companies appreciate Denmark as a location for their business:
- “Companies often get interested in Denmark because of our key knowledge and strong cluster within areas such as cleantech, life sciences and ICT, or because of our location and infrastructure. In the end it is the complete picture that makes them choose Denmark; this includes the skilled and independantly working employees, the well-functioning public system and the flexible labour market.”
Denmark is often heading international rankings: Just recently Transparency International ranked Denmark the least corrupt country in the world and the World Bank points to Denmark as the easiest place in Europe to do business.
