Sector counsellors

Sector counsellors are the link between Danish and local authorities in strategically important sectors, where Denmark has special competencies and experiences with public-private cooperation. They provide knowledge and expertise to Danish companies and Danish authorities on the local water sector in South Africa, shipping in China or pork production in Colombia. As far as possible, sector counsellors support and build upon existing sector networks, government contacts and demand for Danish solutions. Thereby, they contribute to Denmark's economic diplomacy. A total of 25 sector counsellors are posted at Danish embassies in 14 countries.

Focus on Danish core competencies
The sector counsellors focus on sectors where Denmark has special skills, knowledge and technology. They help assess how Danish competencies and solutions can contribute and should be adapted to meet local demand. The sector counsellors build relationships and acquire knowledge on different sectors that the embassy can use to support Danish companies' access to the local market and to promote Danish solutions.

The sector counsellors identify and analyse demand that is relevant to Danish competencies. They build and maintain relationships with relevant local authorities. They concretise the demand and, in cooperation with the Danish authorities, assess how the Danish authorities can help produce results.

14 countries across three continents participate in Strategic Sector Cooperation.

A total of 25 growth counsellors are posted at the Danish embassies:
