On June 15 to 18,  AmCham Denmark joined numerous member companies at the annual political festival “Folkemøde”, which takes place on the Danish island of Bornholm.

This year’s Folkemøde broke all the records. More than 100,000 politicians, NGO's, company representatives, public affairs professionals, media personalities and citizens participated in nearly 3100 registered events during the four-day festival.

AmCham’s Stephen Brugger and Sandra Viborg attended a variety of Folkemøde events in line with our general purpose of strengthening the voice of international business and promoting innovation, jobs and growth in Denmark.

Life Science the American Way
On Friday, AmCham and LIF organized a panel debate on the framework conditions for the Danish life science industry - including a general discussion on the state of the transatlantic relationship and political trends in the U.S. under the new Trump Administration. 

Panelist included Laura Lochman (U.S. Embassy); former Minister Mogens Lykketoft (S); MP Jan E. Jørgensen (V); U.S. expert Mads Fuglede; Henriette Rosenquist (Pfizer); Anders Thelborg (Bristol-Myers Squibb) and Claus Lønborg (Copenhagen Capacity). AmCham's Executive Director Stephen Brugger moderated the session.
