Strategy to keep manufacturing jobs at home

Keeping manufacturing jobs in Denmark is crucial to the country’s economic health, the business and growth minister, Henrik Sass Larsen, says.

By the end of the year, Larsen hopes to present a strategy for how to stem the loss of manufacturing jobs.

The statements come in the wake of an announcement last week that meatpacker Danish Crown had given employees at its Horsens, Jutland, plant an ultimatum that they accept pay cuts or the company would shutter operations there.

Executives at major manufacturers said they welcomed the initiative.
