“Why Danish companies must embrace America”
There has been much talk about the so-called BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) during the past decade. Many Danish companies consider these emerging markets key to future global success. Official Danish export policy has also been heavily skewed toward the BRICS in recent years.
Henrik Fogh Rasmussen will argue that the BRICS are overestimated and that the American market will be the key to global success for most Danish companies in the coming decades. He will explain why he believes that the United States will be even more dominant in the 21st century than in the past, and he will offer advice on how Danish companies can position themselves for the emerging “American century.” He will also share his personal experiences as an immigrant and reflect on important cultural differences between Denmark and the United States.
