Denmark has a population of 5.6 million, of whom 1.6 million live in the Greater Copenhagen region. Strategically situated in the North Sea, Denmark has long been a hub of international trade – and over the centuries has developed an array of favourable Tax Treaties and trade regulations, making it a tempting destination for foreign investors.
Rated by Forbes magazine as the 7th best country to do business, Denmark offers investors a stable and prosperous society heavily engaged in international trade, flexible employment regulations, a positive attitude towards private industry, and an efficient infrastructure. Denmark’s workforce features a high proportion of university graduates with excellent language skills.
Denmark is classified as a small open economy, with imports and exports making up around 50% of GDP. Key exports include machinery, fuels and chemicals. Around 80% of Denmark’s workforce are employed in the service sector.
Denmarks communications are unrivalled. Copenhagen Airport – Europe’s most efficient airport – is the main hub in Northern Europe. In addition, a high-quality motorway network allows swift access to all markets in the region.
