IMA Overview

Country Overview

Denmark is a Nordic country located in northern Europe, located southwest of Sweden and due south of Norway and is bordered by the German state (and former possession) Schleswig-Holstein to the south, on Denmark's only land border, 68 km (42 miles) long.

Denmark is ranked 3rd out of 190 countries, and the top location in Europe, in the World Bank’s 2016 Ease of Doing Business index.

In 2015 Denmark was ranked 1st out of 168 countries in Transparency International's latest corruption perception index. Denmark is one of the EU’s best performing economies. It has low inflation, strong growth and relatively low unemployment at 6.2%.

Strengths of the Danish market include easy access to northern European markets via Copenhagen hub airport and high quality motorway network, a well-educated population with a high proportion of university graduates, an advanced telecommunication infrastructure and it takes only 24 hours to establish a company online.

Doing business in Denmark is very similar to doing business in the UK. If your product or service is successful in the UK, there is a good chance you will be successful in Denmark.
