Economic policy is to contribute to balanced growth

Danmarks Nationalbank

​The Danish economy is booming. Some sectors are experiencing labour shortages, but wages are still increasing only moderately. Economic growth is expected to continue at a slightly slower pace in the coming years. Strong economic balances give reasons to believe that the boom will not be followed by a deep recession as seen in the 2000s. That is Danmarks Nationalbank's conclusion in a new projection of the Danish economy, which forecasts growth in the gross domestic product, GDP, of 1.7 per cent this year and next year, while it is expected to be 1.6 per cent in 2021.
