Advocating for a national talent strategy

For many years, the creation of a national talent strategy has been a top priority for AmCham, and we’ve been urging the Danish Government to take action. Now, we are pleased to see that Sophie Hæstorp Andersen, Mia Nyegaard, Jens Kristian Lütken and Københavns Kommune are doing the same!
