A number of Danish ministers have travelled to Warsaw today along with the royal couple in order to strengthen the co-operation between Denmark and Poland.
The royal couple will be joined by the trade minister Mogens Jensen, the climate minister Kirsten Brosbøl and the health minister Nick Hækkerup who will head a Danish export contingency of more than 60 companies.
“Denmark has a strong and positive brand in Poland and a business boost with the royal couple will help generate new openings and awareness about Denmark,” Jensen said in a press release. ”The Poles want more co-operation with Denmark and want to take advantage of our experiences.”

Poland has moved up from 12 in 2006 to 10 in 2013 when ranking Denmark’s largest export markets. The Danes export 15 billion kroner to Poland annually, a figure that is expected to double by 2020.
“Since Poland joined the EU in 2004, the country has enjoyed a very positive development,” Jensen said. “The business meeting can help further improve the Danish export to Poland which offers great potential for Danish companies with its economic development, infrastructure improvement and increasing welfare.”
Aside from commercial aspects, the Warsaw trip will also include a meeting with the Polish president Bronisław Komorowski, before the Danish contingency moves to the harbour city of Stettin for meetings concerning Danish solutions within sustainable energy.
