Denmark signs innovation deal with Brazil
The business and growth minister, Troels Lund Poulsen, has inked a new innovation and digitalisation deal with Brazil involving the South American nation’s public sector.
The agreement will help pave the way for Danish companies to gain a foothold in the Brazilian market.
“It’s an interesting co-operation in which Brazil will learn from the innovative and digital solutions and services we have in Denmark,” said Poulsen.
“We have a lot to offer the Brazilians, and we hope that the project will open doors for Danish companies in Brazil, which with its 200 million inhabitants has a great need for digital services and sensible options.”

The deal means the Business and Growth Ministry will work with the Brazilian Ministry for Finance, Planning and Public Administration over the next three years.
One of the first initiatives of the newly-minted co-operation involves the establishment of an innovation lab that is due to open in Brazil’s capital, Brasilia.
Last week, a delegation from Brazil was in Denmark and was presented to a number of Danish digital solutions, such as NemID and Virk.dk.
