Epn reports that consumer confidence rose by 1.3 percent since June, according to figures from the national statistics office, Danmarks Statistik.

Economic optimism in July is thereby at its highest since January 2007, and it's the first time ever that consumer confidence has been on the rise continuously for five months in a row. 

Consumer confidence indicates how a population perceive their own and the national economy, both as it is right now and how they expect it to be in the future. If the number is high, people are more likely to spend money.
