Copenhagen lands 2021 budget at record pace

From cycling and cruise ships to daycare and schools, the city needed just five days of negotiations to reach an agreement

It took local politicians at City Hall just five days to reach an accord on the budget for Copenhagen in 2021.

Included in the deal were millions of kroner in funds earmarked for everything from daycare and schools to the elderly and socially vulnerable.

“I’m pleased and proud that such a broad spectrum of parties wanted to take responsibility and ensure that we improve the welfare for our children, vulnerable and elderly – and that Copenhagen can continue to develop as the city we love,” said Copenhagen Mayor Frank Jensen.
