Denmark is the third most business-friendly country in the world

Denmark is once again ranked the third most business-friendly country in the world by The World Bank, surpassed only by New Zealand and Singapore.

Retaining its position in the Ease of Doing Business Index 2017/18 by the World Bank for a second consecutive year, Denmark is once again named the third easiest country for business in the world – and the easiest place for business in Europe.

The Doing Business 2019 is investigating regulation that affects private sector firms, in particular small and medium-sized enterprises, comparing data in 190 economies.

“The World Bank ranking confirms that Denmark offers one of the world’s most dynamic and 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”
- Claus Lønborg, CEO, Copenhagen Capacity who assists foreign businesses and talent in setting up and growing their business in Greater Copenhagen

Copenhagen is the Nordic logistics hub

Denmark takes the first place in the category Trading across borders. This topic records the time and cost associated with the logistical process of exporting and importing goods, and measures the time and cost related to three sets of procedures—documentary compliance, border compliance and domestic transport—within the overall process of exporting or importing a shipment of goods.

In the category Dealing with construction permits, which tracks the procedures, time and cost to build a warehouse, Denmark takes the fourth place.

“Greater Copenhagen is the logistics capital and the centre of gravity in Scandinavia, bridging Europe and the Nordics. From here, you can provide delivery within 24 hours to 100 million consumers in Scandinavia and Northern Europe. This is why leading logistics providers PostNord, DHL Express, UPS, TNT and FedEx all use Greater Copenhagen as their logistics hub for the Nordics”
