The Trade Department

Trade department

The Trade Council works to generate opportunities for Danish business in the US and assists Danish companies in realizing their potential on the US market.

Through an active and targeted approach, we create value for Danish companies by researching and analysing the market, mapping stakeholders, strong relation building, and by designing a solid strategy for the US market based on knowledge and local insight.

In September 2018, Trade Council New York launched the “Global SDG Business Hub” - an initiative with the aim to help Danish companies achieve the sustainable development goals while growing their business abroad.
