Report description

Denmark's economy was hit hard by the fall in international trade in 2008–09. This was a key factor in the largest decline in GDP (which dropped in real terms by -5.7% in 2009 alone) in almost four decades. The economy recovered in 2010, with GDP growing at a rate of 1.5%; however, this was largely due to the turning of the inventory cycle. 2012 saw only limited real growth of 0.6%.
