AmCham Policy Agenda

As the ‘Voice of International Business’, AmCham Denmark represents more than 250 companies actively investing in Denmark and the United States.  A cornerstone of AmCham’s policy and advocacy work is our commitment to building a more competitive business climate in Denmark, one that encourages investments and stimulates growth.

Foreign companies are already responsible for a large part of the value add being created in Denmark today. Although only 1,2 % of companies are foreign owned, these companies employ over 20 % of the private sector workforce and are responsible for more than 27 % of all Danish exports. In 2016, 3.500 foreign companies created more than 300.000 jobs in Denmark, contributing significantly to the Danish economy.

But the fundamental questions are: Are companies investing enough in Denmark? If not, what could Denmark do to become a more attractive place to do business?

AmCham works closely with key business and political stakeholders and provides valuable policy recommendations in areas where we believe Denmark needs to take action! As representatives for international investments in Denmark, we are eager to provide information and insights to key Danish decision makers – and thereby contribute to informed, sound policy decisions improving business operations – and consequently improving the Danish economy.
