Bandiere europee davanti alla Commissione UE


Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Action Robert Habeck will be attending the ceremony to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the German-Danish Chamber of Commerce in Copenhagen today and will be meeting with representatives of leading Danish companies in the energy and climate sectors.

Federal Minister Habeck said: "Denmark is a central partner of Germany for the green transition. We are pulling in the same direction when it comes to building wind farms in the North Sea and the Baltic Sea and we want to expand the electricity lines between our countries in order to remove bottlenecks and further strengthen our crisis preparedness.

"The German-Danish Chamber of Commerce has made a substantial contribution to our positive bilateral economic developments. Since its foundation in 1992, it has been an indispensable link between the German and the Danish economies and a key and reliable pillar of the economic partnership between the two countries."

At the ceremony, Federal Minister Habeck will be making a welcoming speech and he will be discussing with this year’s winners of the chamber’s German-Danish Business Award ways in which Germany and Denmark can jointly further speed up climate change mitigation and sustainability. Prior to the event, Minister Habeck will be talking with representatives of leading Danish companies in the energy and climate sectors about current energy and supply security issues at the Confederation of Danish Industry (DI).

The German-Danish Chamber of Commerce was set up in Copenhagen on 3 December 1992. It advises companies on a broad range of matters relating to market entry, matchmaking, legal issues and support for trade fairs in Denmark and Iceland.

Germany is not only Denmark’s largest neighbour, but also its most important trading partner. In 2021, the total annual trading volume amounted to €33.42 billion.
