Government unveils new 2025 economic strategy

Small changes now can lead to great improvement later, said PM Lars Løkke Rasmussen

The Danish prime minister, Lars Løkke Rasmussen, has revealed the government’s new economic strategy looking ahead towards 2025.

The proposal, ‘Helhedsplan – for et stærkere Danmark’ (Master plan – for a stronger Denmark’), contains seven key areas including welfare, labour, competitiveness, refugees and education.

“The government’s plan reflects that we are adjusting numerous things simultaneously,” said Rasmussen during a press conference.

“When we act in time, then we can yield great improvements by implementing gentle change. We must show due diligence today in order to avoid tough reforms tomorrow.”
