Towards a new era in the Danish economy

The prolonged period of recovery following the global financial crisis is coming to an end. The Danish economy has been growing every year since 2009, unemployment is low and employment is booming. The Danish economy is heading towards a new era. This is apparent from the Economic Survey, December 2016, presented by the Minister for Economic Affairs and the Interior Simon Emil Ammitzbøll.

The upturn continues despite heightened international uncertainty

The global backdrop for growth in the Danish economy has turned bleaker over the summer. Even so, the moderate recovery is set to continue with modest GDP growth and solid growth in the labour market. An additional 118,000 persons are expected to be employed by 2017, compared to 2012, according to the Economic Survey presented today by Minister of Finance Claus Hjort Frederiksen.

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.

Progress in the Danish economy – but public finances are weakened

The Danish economy is improving. Since mid-2013 almost 45,000 persons have gained private employment, and unemployment is down. Progress in the labour market is expected to continue, and GDP growth will rise over the forecast period. Public finances are, however, in a worse condition than previously expected. Hence, it has been necessary to reduce the fiscal room for manoeuvre in 2016. This is documented in the Economic Survey, announced by finance minister Claus Hjort Frederiksen.
