Mr. Hu’s visit was of great importance to Denmark. Sino-Danish cooperation has moved to a higher level. Danish key competencies and Chinese demand is a perfect match. Yet the commercial benefits from the visit will continue to spinoff, as official Chinese recognition will influence the ease of doing business for Danish enterprises in China.
