Ambitious Growth Policies

Copenhagen is among the top 5 fastest growing big-city destinations in Europe, and is a growth engine for Denmark.

Since 65 % of the world's GDP is generated in cities, it is essential to optimally exploit the growth opportunities in the capital city. The goal of the City of Copenhagen’s ‘Business and Growth Policy’ is to become Northern Europe's leading business metropolis - where growth and quality of life go hand in hand. By 2020, the annual GDP growth will have increased to 5 %, with an estimated 20,000 new private jobs created, and productivity will have increased by 4 %. These ambitious goals will be achieved through strengthening and maintaining Copenhagen as an open city that attracts international companies, investments, highly skilled international professionals, tourists and big events.
