Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik will team up with a Danish business delegation for a trip to Indonesia in October to help boost Danish business in an important growth market.

With just over 250 million inhabitants, Indonesia has developed into an exciting growth market for Danish companies over the past decade, but at the moment the fourth-biggest country in the world ranks just 62nd in Danish export markets.

The Danish delegation will be in Indonesia from October 21-24 and will give the Danish business sector an opportunity to show off Danish technology and solutions that can contribute to further growth in the nation.
