Foreign Direct Investments in Denmark on the Rise  


The amount being directly invested in Denmark grew by 29 billion DKK in 2015.

A new report by the National Bank of Denmark on in- and outgoing investment flows shows that foreign direct investment inflows into Denmark in 2015 grew by 29 billion DKK. The value of foreign direct investments in Denmark amounts to 684 billion DKK by year end of 2015, which corresponds to roughly 92 billion EUR.

The increase in foreign direct investments is due to foreign acquisition of, among others, the Danish companies Cheminova by FMC and Universal Robots by Teradyne, as well as capital increases for existing exposures.

“I am pleased to see that Denmark continues to be an attractive country for investments and businesses. It is a positive development, which reflects the successful contribution of many factors and stakeholders. Our transparent and predictable framework conditions, our well-developed IT as well as physical infrastructure and not least our attractive eco system of universities, companies, authorities, individuals and high level of trust,” says Steen Hommel, Director of Invest in Denmark.
