Uncertainty caused by Brexit means many UK-based manufacturing companies might be considering relocation – Denmark is a great place to start looking
At the end of the year, British companies say goodbye to the European Single Market. And even if the British government reaches an agreement on a trade deal with the European Union, trade will become more expensive and complicated between the EU and the UK.
British companies will soon have to grow accustomed to export declarations for every single exported good, as well as approvals and border control. Therefore, many companies are on the lookout for a new home in the EU.
And many companies, particularly in manufacturing, have turned their eyes to Denmark, where productivity and efficiency is among the best in Europe, according to the 2019 ‘IMD World Talent Report’. Denmark also has the highest-ranked engineering university in Europe, Aalborg University, located in the city of Aalborg. Furthermore, the city has also been named the happiest in Europe on several occasions.
