On August 30, Minister of Defense Claus Hjort Frederiksen met with AmCham members, providing a first-hand account of the current political landscape and his ministry.

This latest installment of AmCham’s Meet-the-Leaders series was hosted by Gorrissen Federspiel at their brand new facility in the prominent Axel Towers across from Tivoli Gardens in inner Copenhagen. Gorrissen Federspiel's Partner Søren Fogh and Chargés d'Affaires Laura Lochman, U.S. Embassy, on hand to welcome the Minister and the participants.

In his remarks, Minister Frederiksen focused on his main priorities as Minister, which included the negotiations on the upcoming defense compromise. Frederiksen stressed the need to increase the defense budget to fit the current political situation as well as directing resources towards fighting cyber crimes which - in his words - can be considered a new form of warfare.

Frederiksen also highlighted the importance of the transatlantic relationship and stressed the need of an ongoing dialogue with the U.S. in order to maintain stability and safety in the world.

Following the minister’s speech, AmCham’s Stephen Brugger led an interactive Q&A session, where participants had the opportunity to engage the Minister directly on a wide range of topics.
