Yearbook 2020 5

Message from the U.S. Ambassador to Denmark Investment is flowing into the United States. We’re removing roadblocks to success and rewarding businesses that invest in workers, families, and communities. The upcoming SelectUSA Summit, taking place in June in Washington, DC, is a perfect opportunity to learn more about doing business in the U.S. and to meet and network with key decision makers from both federal government and states. I hope to see you there!

Welcome to the American Market! In 2019, for the first time ever, the United States became Denmark’s largest export market, eclipsing Germany. Our economic partnership, built on our shared values of transparency and fair, competitive markets, is creating new opportunity for businesses and workers on both sides of the Atlantic. For Danish companies looking for an opportunity where they are free to invest, build, thrive, innovate, and succeed, there is no better place than the United States. Tax and regulatory reform, improved trade agreements, including the recently-ratified USMCA, and growth of American energy production have helped to propel the longest economic expansion in our history.

6 Yearbook 2020

The U.S. Embassy and the American Chamber of Commerce have enjoyed a warm and cooperative partnership since the Chamber was originally established 21 years ago. If you are already a member of the American Chamber of Commerce, I hope you are as excited as I am to work together on continuing this incredible run of success for the U.S.-Danish trade and investment relationship. And if you are not a member, there is no better time to join than now! Carla Sands U.S. Ambassador to Denmark

Message from the Danish Ambassador to the USA

Almost a year has gone by in my function as the Danish Ambassador to the United States. It seems like a blink of an eye since I took office and yet so many extraordinary things have happened in all aspects of our bilateral relationship.

As we look further ahead into 2020, I am optimistic that we will see evergreater accomplishments - that our work and effort will be worthwhile and our ties will further strengthen. However, ahead of us are also many challenges and to succeed we need to stand together. One of these challenges is the necessity to move towards greener solutions and draw further attention to our climate. By law, the Danish Government has now committed to elevate the fight against climate change with an ambitious decarbonisation goal that includes reducing CO2 emissions by 70% relative to 1990 levels. In what is a first for a national climate law, this commitment extends beyond Denmark’s borders and necessitates ongoing obligations to deliver and engage in multilateral efforts. It is important to take action now and companies will be instrumental in driving the efforts. Lone Dencker Wisborg Danish Ambassador to the U.S.A.

Through more than two centuries, the United States and Denmark have solidified a remarkable relationship. Driving many of these developments in our close relation, are the backbones of our two economies, the Danish and the American companies that are eager to increase cooperation between our nations. A clear testimony to this commitment occurred in the last quarter of 2019 when the United States became Denmark’s largest export market.

Yearbook 2020 7

Message from the CHAIRMAN AmCham Denmark continues to make great progress representing the interests of U.S. and International companies in Denmark. This is especially evident as we look back on 2019 – AmCham’s 20th year in operation - and the valuable opportunities provided to our members. At the core of our mission is building a more competitive business and investment climate in Denmark, one that encourages investments and creates jobs. We aim to continue the outreach and constructive dialogue with the new Danish Government as a forum for getting our member’s challenges, as well as proposed solutions, heard in the political debate. In the coming year, we will work together to further the transatlantic relationship and showcase Denmark as an international investment hub for innovative and sustainable solutions. There has

never been a more important time to have a strong collective voice speaking on behalf of international business, and with your active support, we will make great strides in 2020. In closing, I would like to acknowledge the valuable relationships we share with our many partners, and extend a special thanks to U.S. Ambassador Carla Sands and Danish Ambassador Lone Wisborg for their invaluable contributions. I am honored and encouraged by their commitment to further develop economic and commercial relations between our two great nations. Thanks also to my fellow board members, whose leadership and engagement is a key factor in AmCham’s current and future success. Finally, let me take this opportunity to thank you, our members, for your continuing participation and support. Richard Wright AmCham Chairman

“We will work together to further the transatlantic relationship and showcase Denmark as an international investment hub.”
