The four countries
The four countries have all in common that they experience moderate to high GDP growth averaging around 4.15 per cent in 2016 and is expected to advance up to average 5 per cent in 2017. Numerous government initiatives and programmes have ensured a remarkable reduction in the share of the population living in poverty and the magnitude of the middle-class is getting significantly greater. According to several studies will all of the four countries income category be upper-middle income economy before 2020 if the GDP growth rates remain high. We believe that the four countries have a tremendous untapped potential for Danish companies, but we also acknowledge the challenges.
The objective of this network meeting is to offer you the opportunity to meet the ambassadors personally and be informed about regional opportunities and threats, strength and weakness, in an objective and professional manner. Moreover, you will have the opportunity to talk to the ambassadors and ask specific business related questions.
