Study tour to Denmark - Jan 22-24, 2014
From January 22-24, Danish-Estonian Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with the Harju Entrepreneurship and Development Consultancy organized a metal processing companies study tour to Denmark. Estonian company representatives visited their industry counterparts in Sjaelland, Fyn and Jutland and received a good overview of the industry in Denmark. It seemed that the topical issues for the sector's representatives were astonishigly similar for both sides - expenses involved with running the industry, logistics and quality.
Involved companies in Denmark:
- Juliana A/S,
- Produktionteknik Aps,
- Dansk Polyglas A/S,
- RØ-KA Industri A/S,
- FLSmidth, Secure A/S
Involved companies from Estonia:
- FinEst Steel AS,
- Hyrles OÜ,
- Vertex Estonia AS,
- Radius Machining OÜ,
- Cosumelt OÜ / T-TAMMER OÜ,
- FerrMix Construction OÜ
In addition to the visited companies, there was a set meeting & discussion with the Estonian honorary consul Mr Bo Staermose, who provoked Estonian companies to be much more active on the Danish market; with the Estonian ambassador to Denmark, Mrs Katrin Kivi who left a positive and potentially prosperous impression on Estonian-Danish trade relations; with the 3rd secretary at the embassy, Mrs Maiga Võsu who gave an indepth description of the Danish working culture and business mentality; and with the EAS Trade Advisor Lucie Neoralova with whom immidiate partner search discussions were initiated.
