Finance act budget for foreign recruitment

31-08-2018 10:00:00

The Danish government is proposing that their finance act focuses more on strengthening international recruitment, so that Denmark can attract well-educated international work labor and do something about the increasing demand. This also covers the maritime industry.

"It is important that Denmark has access to qualified labor so that we can ensure attractive growth rates for our future society. We are already seeing a demand for labor force in the Blue Denmark, it is therefore pleasing to see that the government of the finance act focuses on strengthening international recruitment, "says Anne H. Steffensen, CEO of Danske Rederier.

The finance act also supports to attract more women to the maritime industry. Over the next two years, one million Danish kroner has been set aside to attract more students to maritime education programs and the target students are especially women.

"We are happy with the helping hand, as we wish to see more women in maritime educational programs. At the same time, the initiative supports our own recruitment campaign World Careers, which already focuses on career opportunities within the Blue Denmark, "says Anne H. Steffensen.

At the same time, the Blue Denmark will be hit by cost reductions. The Maritime Authority will have to reduce their budget from the current 300,5 million kroner spent in 2018 to 280.9 million kroner in 2022.

On the other hand, the government is putting more money aside for cleaning and surveying Danish waters. 19 million kroner will be set aside for 2019, and an annual 18 million kroner in the period of 2020-2022.

There has also been set aside a budget for the development of a standard concept for ferries and island sailing.
