Maritime businesses steaming towards growth

Businesses in the largest sector of the nation’s economy say they are gearing up for growth.

Two-thirds of maritime-related businesses, which employ about 115,000 people, expect to hire more people in Denmark in the coming year, while 80 percent say they can see new growth opportunities.

Many firms indicated the market was still soft, but said they were making investments in the expectation that a recovery was close at hand.
