Policy Committee: How Local Politics Can Influence International Business

Danish Municipalities are key in creating framework conditions that determine how attractive a location is for doing business.

However, most businesses and organizations seek influence in the national political debate, focusing their efforts on dialogue with members of Parliament. But what about the local business environment?

On November 21, 2017, Denmark will conduct local elections for municipalities and regions. And so we raise the question: How can local politicians make a difference for international businesses?

The Confederation of Danish Industry (DI) has recently published their annual report: ‘2017 Local Business Climate Survey in which they ask 7,600 companies to rate their local municipality’s business climate.

The survey includes parameters such as case processing, infrastructure, taxation levels and the overall dialogue with the municipality. So why are some municipalities doing remarkably better than others? What role do the local politicians play in comparison to members of parliament? And how may the upcoming 2017 local elections improve or even worsen the current rankings?

Join us for this interesting discussion with Mayor Michael Ziegler (Høje-Taastrup), Cecilia Lonning-Skovgaard, Liberal Party Candidate for Mayor of Copenhagen and Vice President Kent Damsgaard, Confederation of Danish Industry. Additional speakers forthcoming.
