General Remarks

Denmark’s soil is productive from an agricultural point of view but is poor in mineral resources, as a consequence of which the emphasis of industry is laid on products requiring know-how and skilled labor.

The most important industries are manufacturing, the food industry, the chemical industry, and the electronics industry.

Denmark is a member of the European Union.
