The Danish Government released the new strategy for economic diplomacy on Thursday. It aims to enable Danish companies to contribute to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) while at the same time enhancing Danish companies' export opportunities.

“There is a need for more sustainability in global development. Danish companies have strong and sustainable solutions, which can contribute to fulfilling the SDGs. At the same time, economic diplomacy can improve and develop markets in developing countries and ensure that more young people stay and help develop their own countries rather than migrating to Europe,” said Danish Minister for Development Cooperation, Ulla Tørnæs.

The Strategy has five objectives:

  • Ensure a favourable international framework conditions for export.
  • Contribute to increased export and bigger market shares for Danish businesses.
  • Develop more growth companies through internationalisation.
  • Attract more investments to Denmark.
  • Strengthen Denmark’s leading position within innovation and digital transition.
