“Copenhagen is part of the economically important Øresund region with an upland of almost 4 Mio. citizens. The region is growing and it is one of the most economically strong areas for business start-ups in the EU. The Øresund region is the bridge for many large German companies to the northern European countries”, Jens Pastille, who is responsible partner for Northern Europe adds. “Furthermore, Germany is the region’s most important trading partner.”
Due to their economic growth, which is above average, the northern European countries have been considered as the most economically stable region in Europe for years. A major need for investment in the public infrastructure, real estate, logistics and energy sectors ensures high growth dynamics in the coming years.
