Danida Business

The Department for Growth and Employment is the entry-point for companies to Danish development assistance. Here you can find information on the various programmes designed to motivate companies to get involved in social and economic development.

Developing countries need an enabling environment for the private sector to create economic growth, one of the preconditions for effective poverty alleviation.

It is a strategic priority in Danish development cooperation to work for a stronger private sector. For Danida, it is important that Danish businesses participate actively in this endeavour.
