Copenhagen – the capital of Denmark
Copenhagen is the biggest city in Denmark. The city has excellent facilities for the inhabitants and businesses.
Copenhagen expects a heavy population growth towards 2035, where the population is expected to increase by 18% from the current 718,000 inhabitants to 847,000 inhabitants.
The City of Copenhagen has appointed a trade council consisting of representatives from businesses, educational institutions and organisations. The trade council will contribute towards the direction of the city’s enterprise policy. The council aims at an annual economic growth rate of five per cent, e.g. to attract international investments.
If this aim is realised, in combination with the heavy population growth, it will ensure a steadily increasing need for housing as well as commercial properties.
In order to meet the increasing housing demand, areas such as Nordhavnen, Sydhavnen and Ørestaden are being heavily developed. In the past few years, thousands of new homes have been built here and a heavy increase in housing constructions are expected for the coming years.
The Copenhagen infrastructure is extremely well-developed. Ongoing investments are made to further improve the infrastructure, and Cityringen – the newly developed metro line connecting all the Copenhagen urban districts – will open in 2019. In the years to come, this line will be extended with new stations in both Nordhavnen and Sydhavnen. Upon completion of the ongoing metro projects, the metro will cover most of Copenhagen and thus considerably improve the efficiency of the public transport system, and in this connection many inefficient bus lines will be discontinued.
Copenhagen Airport is a very well-managed and popular airport that offers a wide range of national and international destinations and, therefore, attracts passengers from South Sweden and all of Jutland.
Furthermore, Copenhagen is the home of several established educational and research institutions. Among others, you will find Copenhagen University, which ranks as number 116 on the “World University Rankings” list, and Copenhagen Business School, which ranks as an impressive number 49 on Quacquarelli Symonds’ (QS) list of business schools. Institutions such as these ensure that businesses will have access to qualified manpower and the latest knowledge.
