EU: Denmark’s economy in good shape, but challenges persist
the Danish economy looks to be in solid shape. The report found that economic growth in Denmark has averaged 1.9 percent since 2014 and that reforms have helped a record number of people to find employment. However, a shortage of skilled workers continues to hamper development. Challenges include finding the investment required for skilled workers, research & development, and transport infrastructure, while reducing the dropout rates of students and incentivising them to choose a vocational education, thus increasing the employability of vulnerable groups. “Things are going well in Denmark. Public finances are in order and employment is at a record high. Since the parliamentary election, Denmark’s GDP has risen by 118 billion kroner – the equivalent of 100 million kroner every day,” said the finance minister, Kristian Jensen.
