Copenhagen is among the top 5 fastest growing big city destinations in Europe, and is a growth engine for Denmark. The City of Copenhagen is engaged in regional and international relations. To expand the visibility of the solutions that are employed, tested and demonstrated in Copenhagen we work to promote the city as an international showcase for smart green solutions
We do this by establishing showcase platforms, membership of international city networks and other means that showcase the solutions to a wider global audience. On the regional level, Copenhagen cooperates closely with the neighbouring regions in order to create an attractive business region.
