Danish companies’ activities in China still crucial to performance

03 July 2020

'Being present in China now is more relevant than it has ever been. If walls are erected for one reason or another, you need to be inside that wall or you cannot survive’ says one business executive.

The ”Survey of Danish Companies in China – Challenges and Opportunities”-report was recently published by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark.

The report, which is the outcome of a collaboration between The Royal Danish Embassy in China, The Danish Chamber of Commerce in China (DCCC) and SDC, presents the results of a survey carried out in the beginning of 2020, which the Danish Ambassador A. Carsten Damsgaard called ’the most comprehensive and ambitious mapping of Danish companies’ activities and challenges in China to date’.

The survey was distributed among business executives of companies that are members of the Danish Chamber of Commerce in China, with the purpose of gaining an understanding of how important their activities in China was for their overall global performance and to identify challenges and opportunities.

The report was originally meant to be published in the spring, but due to the outbreak of COVID-19, it was decided to postpone the presentation of the findings. An add-on survey was conducted in the light of COVID-19 outbreak, which aims to provide valuable insights into the longer-term impact of COVID-19 on the Danish business community in China, and the conclusions are in.
