Venue: Aarhus, Denmark 

In 2018 Denmark was the number 36 economy in the world in terms of GDP (current US$), the number 37 in total exports, the number 35 in total imports, and the number 23 most complex economy according to the Economic Complexity Index (ECI). In 2018, Denmark exported $101B and imported $103B, resulting in a negative trade balance of -$1.93B. In 2018, Denmark's exports per capita were $17.5k and its imports per capita were $17.8k.

Denmark is one of the most trade-oriented economies in the world. As a base for exporting, Denmark has many advantages. Its key location as the only Scandinavian country connected to mainland Europe, plus its position on the Baltic sea, gives it access to lucrative markets for both EU and non-EU countries. Its extensive infrastructure and well-educated, high-skilled workforce also help promote trade and foreign investment.

Aarhus was the host for the European Capital of Culture in 2017, and is is one of the largest industrial ports in northern Europe with the largest container terminal in Denmark, processing more than 50% of Denmark's container traffic and accommodating the largest container vessels in the world. It is a municipal self-governing port with independent finances.
