A group of businessmen from Denmark is exploring the Philippines for investment opportunities in the food, energy and healthcare sectors.
Denmark’s Trade Minister Morgens Jensen led a business delegation from 19 companies during a one-day plenary and seminar at the Dusit Thani Hotel in Makati City on January 23.
Danish officials led the reopening of the embassy of Denmark in Manila, 12 years after it was shut down.
The Danish embassy said the reopening of the Manila office would be the “start of a dynamic and robust relation” between the two countries.
Jensen said the reopening of the office would bode well for future cooperation.
“The Philippines is facing a promising future; [following] recent year of successful reforms, economic development and [credit rating] upgrades. If you should sustain the reforms, there should be high potential,” he said.
He said Denmark was prepared to team up with the Philippines in building the latter’s economy that could thrive on free trade.
