Foreign investors staying out of Denmark

Danish companies invest a lot more abroad than foreign ones bring into the country.

New figures from the Danish National Bank show that Danish companies still invest a lot more abroad than foreigners invest in Denmark. Throughout 2013, only 12.5 billion kroner came into the country compared to 52 billion kroner invested abroad.

This means that the total value of Danish investments abroad is 556 billion kroner higher than that of foreign investment in Denmark. Foreign investment in Denmark did increase in 2013, an increase of 13 billion on 2012, but the figure is still much lower than it used to be in the past.
