Denmark fastest-growing nation when it comes to national ship registers
Denmark’s register has seen an extremely healthy growth rate of almost 25 percent over the last 12 months – figures that have not been seen since the 1990s. “It shows that our policies are working and that relaxing regulatory burdens, digitalisation, and generally strengthening the framework and service level for this area have had a definite effect on growth,” said the business minister, Brian Mikkelsen. At the beginning of this year, Parliament removed a registration tax that was seen as a hindrance to the competitiveness of the Danish flag. The Danish ship register now has 20 million gross registered tonnes on its books distributed over 700 vessels. Denmark is now the world’s 12th-largest flag state and number four in Europe.
