About us

The Trade Council is your gateway to new export markets

We are present on the global markets and offer up-to-date advisory support and expertise to Danish companies. The Trade Council is the part of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that assists companies in realising their ambitions within export, innovation and growth.
Each year, The Trade Council helps around 3,000 companies to expand their export activities and enter new markets.
"After purchasing export promotion services, turnover and value added are 8-9 percentage points higher, whilst employment has risen by 4 percentage points."
Jakob Roland Munch, Professor of Finance, Copenhagen University Feature Article in Børsen (daily business newspaper), 8 June 2018

Denmark’s international trade agreements and the rising prosperity of the world’s developing economies create good conditions for the Danish business community. Combined with developments within areas such as climate technology, fintech and welfare technology, there is a huge potential for Danish solutions abroad.

Consequently, The Trade Council is present in more than 70 countries, where we work closely with the business community and possess in-depth knowledge of the local markets, and where our staff offer solid business advice and support.

Our export advisers comprise a mixture of local staff with good contacts in local companies and trade organisations as well as posted staff with roots in the Danish business sector. This ensures the right balance, enabling your company to get the best value-adding advice.

We also have expertise within international trade policy and can assist with, for example, market analyses, business set-up counselling and business plans, advise about customs and export rules and regulations, and mediate contact to business partners and new sales channels.

The Trade Council’s staff are bound by a duty of non-disclosure and therefore treat all information received from business partners and companies in confidence. Read more about duty of non-disclosure here.
