Introduction

Denmark has an effectively integrated financial regulatory system. Government debt is well below the EU average, allowing for fiscal stimulus if growth slows. Productivity and competitiveness are issues, but the government has a long-term growth plan to boost output by DKK40 billion ($7.1 billion) during 2014–2020. Lack of export market diversification and high household debt are also weaknesses.
