On Monday, March 8, the American-Danish Business Council, in partnership with AmCham Denmark, hosted a virtual executive briefing for their members. A key note was provided by H. E. Lone Wisborg, Ambassador of Denmark to the United States. The Ambassador provided unique insights and perspectives on the latest developments in the US as well as on the bilateral economic relationship between Denmark and the US.
Starting off the briefing, the Ambassador reflected on the first weeks of Biden’s Presidency where she noted him for being an activist president in many aspects with already 41 executive orders signed, since taking office in January. Besides the new Administration’s first priority of putting an end to the pandemic and getting the economy back on track, the American interest for the green transition with sustainable solutions is rapidly increasing, and with the US re-joining the Paris Agreement, it is indeed exciting times for danish companies.
After the briefing, members were invited to direct questions to the Ambassador. Many great questions were received from the audience, opening up for even more discussions on topics from trade policy between EU and the US, Buy American, and to US tax regulation and the Embassy’s role in supporting the Danish companies going forward.
We would like to thank the Ambassador for providing insights into the early phases of the Biden Administration, as well as providing an outlook for the year to come.
Finally, we want to thank AmCham Denmark for a great event and for all members who participated.
