Denmark has dynamic, attractive business environments
"Greater Copenhagen offers innovative companies and industry clusters, a highly skilled workforce, very competitive taxes and business costs, and a famously flexible labour market", Loenborg said in a press release.
The World Bank ranks Denmark number one in Europe and number three in the world in the just released 2017 Ease of Doing Business Index, ranking 190 countries and regions worldwide.
It is the sixth time in a row for Denmark to take the top spot among the European countries, outperforming its Nordic fellow countries Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland.
"The World Bank ranking confirms that Denmark offers one of the world's most dynamic and attractive business environments," Loenborg said.
Doing Business 2017 is the 14th in a series of annual reports published by World Bank Group, measuring the regulations that enhance business activity and those that constrain it across 190 economies. ■
