Copenhagen businesses: Not good enough, Mr Mayor

Despite campaigning on a pledge to improve the city’s reputation as a place to do business, the mayor, Frank Jensen, has accomplished little that has helped to achieve that goal, according to businesses themselves.

Copenhagen consistently ranks as one of the worst places in Denmark to do business, and a new poll finds that 30 percent of companies say the capital’s business climate has worsened since Jensen took office four years ago.

Seventeen percent said things had improved. Jensen said his administration had passed new measures to assist businesses, but pointed out that it would take time before the effects of the policies could be seen.

He also said disruptions in connection with construction of the new Metro line had an impact on companies’ ability to do business.
