Global Trade Trends: What's the impact on Danish companies?
It’s getting crowded out there in the free trading world. The hunt for new global partners is redefining the traditional rules of engagement between nations. It’s open season on anything that moves between borders — not only products, investments and intellectual property, but also new rules on competition, and the inclusion of labor laws and environmental guidelines.
This joint event sponsored by DABF and Danish-Chinese Business Forum (DCBF) will help you learn more about the trends in free trade and the integration of economies. Specifically, we will discuss the several trade agreements in negotiations between the US, EU and China. Presentations will include speakers from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Udenrigsministeriet), Danish Industry (Dansk Industri) and others.
TTIP and Beyond: Transatlantic Business Opportunities within Agriculture and Food
It’s time to start to dispel the myths and clarify the upsides of the TTIP for Danish food and agriculture companies. How can you benefit from the TTIP? What should you demand of it? Company cases with concrete examples of how to deal with the US market - export procedures, tariffs and more.
This joint event sponsored by Danish Agriculture and Food Council (Landbrug & Fødevar) and Danish-American Business Forum will help you learn more about the potential impact of the TTIP agreement. Presentations will include speakers from DAFC, the US Ambassador Rufus Gifford, as well as representatives from several Danish companies.

Insurance Challenges in the US: Ask the experts
At this Sept. 29th event, DABF featured US and Danish specialists from both AIG and Aon, to help member companies understand how to manage different types of risks in the US market. With humor and deep insight, they addressed issues such as state differences in Worker's Compensation, Auto, Employer Practice Liability, and Cyber Risk. They quizzed us on issues such as what to do about employees who travel state to state, risks of encountering uninsured drivers in US, and differences between insuring employees and expats, and AIG showed us their online tools that help companies create required documents in US, such as Employee Handbooks.

One positive feature of the post-crisis global economy is the increase in M&A. Potential business benefits are great, but far too few deliver the sought-after profitability, market share, and increased company momentum. High failure rates, especially with cross-border mergers, happen when incompatibilities surface between the two organizations. DABF and member companies explored how to maximize value from M&S investments by having a clear positioning strategy, acknowledging and benefiting from cultural diversity, and developing clear shared processes that smooth the transition. We heard from Michael Sherain at host Quadric, Heidi Rottbøll Andersen, founder of Living Insitute, and Peter Kürstein, Chairman of Radiometer.

Been sued in the US? What to do, when to do it, and what to expect
Danish companies often don't know what to expect in terms of risk from the American legal system. Without proper legal guidance, they often mistake the importance of document retention programs, early witness interviews to preserve evidence, etc. Join DABF and our experts from the US and Denmark to learn more about the key distinctions and similarities between litigation in the US and in Denmark. We'll focus on the US state vs. federal systems, the discovery process in US courts, the jury system, and more.
