Denmark is constantly adapting to changing global markets and conditions. We have transformed the country from a production society into an innovative knowledge economy in lessthan one generation, while keeping focus on impeccable quality, which is still the trademark of Danish business. Denmark has a cutting edge in a number of sectors including Green Energy, Life Science and Living Design due to the ability to link scientifically based innovation with creativity and the international brand of Danish design. ln addition, many Danish companies are known for conducting their business based on corporate social responsibility.
Our main strengths include competitive capital and commodity markets, a very flexible labor market and a highly skilled labor force. In combination with the comprehensive Danish welfare state supported by a very efficient public sector and a tax freeze implemented since 2001 our strengths provide an excellent platform for Danish companies to seize the opportunities of globalisation individually and in collaboration with foreign partners.
The Danish economy is robust. Since the early 90's the macro-economic policy has been focused on maintaining sound domestic finances and paying off foreign debt. Combined with a very low unemployment rate, a highly skilled workforce, and one of the most developed infrastructures in the world, this has allowed Denmark to face the global financial crisis with confidence. This has ensured political and. financial freedom to pursue an effective counter cyclical macroeconomic policy that has limited the effects ofther financial and economic crisis.
The Danish Government is committed to maintain and improve Denmark's position as one of the wealthiest, most adaptable, competitive and innovative countries in the world. The Government has launched a comprehensive "Growth Forum ” consisting of members of
Government, prominent Danish CE Os, scientists and other experts, to ensure that the vision is translated into reality.
I sincerely hope that Export Denmark will prove a useful tool to you when considering expanding your business relations with Denmark. The Directory is also available on the Internet at www. export—denmark. dk. We are looking forward to working with you.

Head of Denmark
