UK & Ireland as a Market

The GDP of the British economy was 2.2 trillion British pounds in 2021 and was the fifth-largest global economy, behind the United States, China, Japan, and Germany. The UK was Denmark's 4th largest export market in 2021, totalling DKK 89.1 billion in revenues which accounted for 6,0% of Danish exports. In 2020, 918 Danish subsidiaries employed a total of 81,179 people in the UK.

The market is, due to its size and relative proximity to Denmark, an important step in the internationalisation of Danish companies and critical for Danish exports.
