Welcome to the business section of our website!
Winning the Future together. This was the theme of President Obama’s State of the Union Address in 2011, but it also applies to the importance of the United States and Europe to each other – and to the world.
“Winning the Future” -- acknowledges that we have the potential for a better future – and “together” acknowledges that we have the best prospects if we work together. In this effort, the United States and Denmark are partners, not competitors.
We all know that mutually beneficial trade creates growth and jobs for both trading partners. That truth is well understood in the U.S. and Denmark. Danish businesses who export should understand that the United States is your most important trading partner outside of Europe. The two way trade between the U.S. and Denmark in 2011 was 48.3 billion Danish Kroner. And a significant fact about that number for Denmark is that most of that two-way trade -- about 36.3 billion Kroner -- was exports from Denmark to the U.S.
The American market is open to products, ideas, and inward investment in ways that few others are. President Obama has emphasized this openness to both foreign and domestic investors. In 2011, he established “SelectUSA” to assist foreign companies as they invest in our country.
SelectUSA also has consolidated information on federal programs and services available to companies that operate in the United States into a one-stop web portal. This resource should be a perfect tool for Danish companies and we hope that more will benefit from this new service.
With its stable political and economic environment and well developed rule of law, Denmark is an excellent market for U.S. companies. With its state-of-the-art infrastructure and distribution systems, a highly skilled labor force and a central location, Denmark is an excellent distribution point for the Scandinavian, Northern European and Baltic markets. Furthermore, Denmark is a firm advocate of liberal trade and investment policies and actively encourages foreign investment.
The Embassy, including the Commercial and Political/Economic Sections, is dedicated to promoting and protecting U.S. commercial interests in Denmark and stands ready to offer a variety of services to both U.S. and Danish companies.
We hope you find the information on this site useful, and please do call upon us to assist you in whatever way we can.
