Big investments in Danish cleantech
Annual results from Invest in Denmark show that an increased number of foreign companies invested in Denmark in 2012, the majority of these from the cleantech industry.
During the past year, Invest in Denmark assisted 57 foreign companies in establishing a business in Denmark, mainly within the strong Danish sectors of cleantech, life science and ICT. The majority of investments in 2012 were within the leading Danish cleantech industry. One example is the Chinese wind tower producer, Titan Wind Energy, which established new headquarters in Denmark.
“Last year’s investors point to the highly-skilled Danish workforce, the flexibility of the Danish labour system, our country’s ideal geographic location, as well as great facilities for research and development as decisive factors for choosing to place their investments here in Denmark,” says Pia Olsen Dyhr, Minister for Trade and Investment.
