Continued economic progress despite modest growth

The Danish economy continues its progress, and unemployment is now on a 40-year low except from the years 2007 and 2008 when the labour market was overheated. Since the turnaround in the fall of 2012, employment in the private sector has increased by 82,000 persons. This is documented in the Economic Survey released by the finance minister Claus Hjort Frederiksen today.

Progress in the Danish economy calls for a less accomodative fiscal policy stance

The Danish economy has been strengthened through 2015, and both GDP and employment have grown. The economy is not booming, but growth has been strong enough to drive a significant improvement in the labour market, and employment in the private sector has increased by 66,000 persons since the turnaround in 2012. As the business cycle continues to improve, the need for a gradual reversion of the accommodative fiscal policy grows. This is documented in the Economic Survey, released by the finance minister Claus Hjort Frederiksen today.

Politics should not be hidden behind rhetoric. Politics must be clear, concise and consequent.

Minister of Finance, Claus Hjort Frederiksen
