Governor Lars Rohde's presentation at Djøf's Negotiator conference on status and prospects for the Danish economy

Danmarks Nationalbank

The pandemic has resulted in a two-speed economy: For example, activity has been low in the experience industry due to fears of infection and restrictions, while it has been high in, for example, the construction industry and in the housing market, where prices have increased significantly. The two-speed situation is also evident in the labour market, where employment has especially been affected in the service industries. Looking ahead, Danmarks Nationalbank expects that economic activity will quickly recover in line with the population being vaccinated and the restrictions being eased.
