Foreign direct investment
Over the last 30-40 years, the extent of FDI has expanded rapidly, both globally and in
Denmark. This has enabled firms to expand more than if they operated solely within the
borders of a single country. Very large Danish firms, especially in the industrial sector, are
the main Danish investors abroad, especially in Denmark's trading partner countries. FDI
generates substantial investment income. FDI abroad is found to neither crowd out nor
stimulate domestic investment to any substantial extent.
