Current Situation

 

Denmark is located in Northern Europe, it is bordered by Germany and shares sea borders with Norway and Sweden. Denmark is a member of the European Union and NATO. Denmark's economy is a very open-market economy, it attracts large companies and has its own multinational companies. Only slow growth is predicted for Denmark in the next year, it is thus recovering more slowly from the global recession.
