Moreover, Denmark outranked most countries in all the five sub-indexes composing the report. Foreign investors who want to open a company and need assistance can request the help of our lawyers in Denmark.

Denmark has one of the best ICT infrastructures worldwide

The Global Connectivity Industry is not a simple report issued by a company or a magazine, but it serves as a reference to major telecom players all over the world establishing their next investment destination and also to other investors seeking to open companies in a certain country. This is why it is important for Denmark to be present in it and even more to achieve such a good position: the 6th.

Denmark has a “strong” ICT (information and communications technology) infrastructure with advanced cloud capabilities, according to the GCI. This is the result of the new eGovernment Strategy enabled in 2016 which will continue until 2020 and which aims to implement digitalization in the public administration. Also, by the end of 2020, the government hopes to enable a telemedicine and a welfare technology which helps Danish citizens. Until this moment, the government managed to connect the population and Danish companies with the public authorities.

Denmark was named a “frontrunner” in the GCI

This means that Denmark outranked most countries in all five categories the report is based on:

  • -          broadband internet connection;
  • -          could computing;
  • -          big data processing;
  • -          data centers;
  • -          Internet of Things (IoT).

Being a frontrunner also means that the average GDP per capita is 50,000 USD, a “title” which is usually granted to very developed economies. The large investments made by the government to develop cloud services, the IoT and the data centers are the ones to have put Denmark on this place in the GCI. Moreover, Denmark is also expected to move faster in terms of innovation, artificial intelligence, smart cities and manufacturing, and e-government.
