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.
