Fewer Danes Become Expats

The global crisis has caused a decrease of 15.5 percent of Danes moving abroad. In 2009, 20.085 Danes chose to leave Denmark for a life overseas, but just two years before, the number was 23.771. The Danish news paper Børsen reports this based on number from Danmarks Statistik, and according to futurologist Jeffrey Saunders, the dramatic drop of more than 15 percent is caused by the global economic crisis. The crisis has prevented people from being offered a good job abroad.
