15/01/2014 - The OECD’s latest Economic Survey of Denmark, to be published on Monday 20 January 2014, assesses the country’s gradual recovery from the global economic crisis as well as the need for further structural reforms to boost productivity growth and maintain high levels of well-being among its population. The Survey also looks at what Denmark can do to improve functioning of the financial sector, foster competition and innovation and make the best use of skills across the labour market.
The Survey will be available to registered journalists on the OECD's password-protected website at 10:00 a.m. local time for immediate release.
An Overview with the main conclusions will be freely accessible in pdf format on the OECD’s web site at www.oecd.org/eco/surveys/economic-survey-denmark.htm. You are invited to include this Internet link in reports on the Survey.
