Denmark is fourth in the world at attracting high-value foreign investment projects, according to IBM’s 2015 Global Location Trends report. This confirms Denmark’s position as an attractive destination for knowledge-intensive investment.

The Global Location Trends report 2015 by IBM ranks Denmark fourth in the world in terms of attracting high-value investment projects, which create high-paying and knowledge-intensive jobs.

“The ranking confirms that Denmark is a top performer when it comes to offering an attractive business environment with innovative industry clusters, vibrant R&D environments and a highly-skilled workforce”, says Claus Lønborg, CEO, Copenhagen Capacity.
