Copenhagen and Denmark both take competitiveness strides
Denmark has been ranked in the top five on the 2019 Global Talent Competitiveness Index, an annual list compiled by INSEAD – a rise of two places compared to last year. Denmark was ranked fifth in the index, behind top-dogs Switzerland, Singapore, the US and Norway, while Finland, Sweden, the Netherlands, the UK and Luxembourg completed the top 10. “Denmark (5th) is a top performer in the Enable (3rd) and Retain (4th) pillars. In the former case, the strong Regulatory and Market Landscapes (ranking in 10th in both) are complemented by an exemplary Labour and Business Landscape (3rd) that combines flexible labour markets with comprehensive social protection,” the index report found. Copenhagen also improved compared to last year, moving to second from fourth, following a tumble the year before. The Danish capital finished just behind Washington DC and ahead of Oslo, Vienna and Zurich.
