In a bid to increase awareness and get the Danes more involved in Denmark’s aid policies, the foreign minister, Kristian Jensen, will be touring the nation in the coming weeks.

Jensen hopes the debates will offer up some tips as to how Denmark can best spend the estimated 15 billion kroner it annually spends on aid.

“I look forward to meeting with the Danes and discussing how we can best spend Denmark’s development funds,” said Jensen.


“The world is facing huge challenges in terms of crises and conflicts that continuously generate migrants and refugees.”
