Highlights

U.S. Relationship

U.S.-Denmark Relations

Denmark and the United States have long enjoyed a close and mutually beneficial relationship. The two countries consult closely on European and other regional political and security matters and cooperate extensively to promote peace and stability well beyond Europe’s borders. Denmark is a stalwart NATO ally and a reliable contributor to multinational stability operations, as well as to international assistance initiatives. Denmark has forces deployed worldwide to NATO, the UN, and the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS. Denmark will take over leadership of NATO Mission Iraq in December 2020.

Bilateral Economic Relations

Denmark is a social welfare state, with a thoroughly modern, services-based economy. Denmark is highly dependent on foreign trade and is a strong supporter of liberal trade policy. Denmark’s strategic location at the entrance to the Baltic Sea has made Copenhagen a center for U.S. agencies and the private sector dealing with the Nordic/Baltic region.
