Denmark’s unemployment now amounts to 114,900 people, equivalent to 4.3 per cent of the workforce.
“The labour market is reaching new heights, and unemployment is therefore falling. We are experiencing strong progress in which companies are receiving many new orders and therefore require a lot of new employees,” says Deputy Director Steen Nielsen, the Confederation of Danish Industry.
“The companies are ready to generate further growth, create more jobs and increase prosperity in Denmark. They simply need the workers to do so. We need to focus more on solving this challenge, among other things by making it easier for foreign talents to come to the country,” says Steen Nielsen.
