Yesterday, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Anders Samuelsen, and Minister for Development Cooperation of Denmark, Ulla Tørnæs, presented the governments new foreign and security policy strategy for 2019-2020. Danish shipping organization Danske Rederier is happy with the strategy’s focus on a new clear direction for Danish economic diplomacy and support for Danish business.

”International cooperation is essential for the shipping industry. That is why we are very happy with the governments new foreing and security policy strategy. With continued support for the EU's ambitious trade policy agenda, an increased focus on easier access to trade and exploitation of global growth opportunities in countries such as China, the government is focusing on areas that can become beneficial for Danish business and Danish shipping, "says Jacob K. Clasen, Director at Danske Rederier.

The strategy focuses on things such as strengthening the presence of Danish Business on international markets, in key areas such as international cooperation, economic diplomacy and a more flexible European system based on free trade.

A strong global effort from official Denmark is essential for Danish shipping. With over two thirds of total activities outside EU borders, our maritime industry is constantly exposed to global competition, international framework conditions, and not least the challenges that arrive from this.

Foreign policy has a significant impact on Danish shipping companies. Shipping is Denmark's largest export business. More than 90 percent of the activities are exports, and more than 70 percent of the activities take place outside of EU borders.
