8/01/2019 - The latest OECD Economic Survey of Denmark, to be released on Tuesday 15 January, analyses the factors behind slower economic growth over the past decades, as well as the medium-term challenges to ensure that living standards and well-being remain among the highest in the world. The Survey discusses actions to boost productivity growth, adapt business framework conditions to disruptive technologies and improve public sector efficiency. It also identifies reforms that will reinforce inclusiveness, reduce vulnerabilities from housing and financial markets and improve pension savings.
The Survey will be available to registered journalists on the OECD's password-protected website at 13:30 CET (12:30 GMT) on Tuesday 15 January for immediate release.
OECD Deputy Secretary-General Ludger Schuknecht will present the Survey during a press conference in Copenhagen with Denmark’s Minister of Finance Kristian Jensen, starting at 13:30 local time, at the Ministry of Finance (Christiansborg Slotsplads 1, 1218 Copenhagen K).
An Overview of the Economic Survey, with the main conclusions, will be freely accessible on the OECD’s website at: http://www.oecd.org/eco/surveys/economic-survey-denmark.htm. You are invited to include this Internet link in reports on the Survey.
