Economic surveys and country surveillance

Economic Survey of Denmark 2019


Overview of the Survey in English or Executive Summary in Danish


The Danish economy has been growing above 2% in recent years and the steady expansion is projected to continue. Living standards and wellbeing rank among the highest across OECD countries in most dimensions. Danish firms are close to the technological frontier thanks to digitalisation and favourable business framework conditions. Yet, economic growth has been weaker than in other OECD countries over the past decades and productivity growth has been sluggish, especially in services.
