News from Copenhagen Post

  • Danish prices 12 percent higher than EU average. Authority points to anti-competitive business culture and complacent consumers as reasons why we pay more than other Europeans do. We pay dearly for our goods and services in Denmark - 12 percent more dearly, according to a new report from the Competition Authority. We pay five percent more for goods on average than other EU citizens do. When it comes to services, such as getting the car breaks fixed, having a tooth cavity filled, dinner at a restaurant, or the cab ride home afterward, we pay 14 percent more on average.
  • Business leaders bemoan closed borders. Plans for stricter border controls send a "bad" signal that will make it harder to do business, critics say. The Confederation of Danish Industry and Horesta, the association for the hotel, restaurant and tourism industry, have come out in opposition to the Liberal-Conservative government's border control plan, which they claim is damaging for business. "The reaction from abroad has been stronger than anyone imagined and we are very much against implementation of the tighter border controls," Karsten Dybvad, the managing director of the Confederation of Danish Industry, told Berlingske newspaper on Thursday.  "Denmark can't have a world-class industrial base when the country sends out such awful signals. The border agreement supports neither openness nor internationalism. In fact, it sends out the exact opposite signal," he added. Last week The Copenhagen Post reported that summer house rental agencies were experiencing  cancellations from Germans tourists as direct political protest to the planned border controls.
