Copenhagen is a perfect place for both businesspeople and those seeking good entertainment. According to the “2017 Better Life” report from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation Development (OECD), Danish people have one of the best work-life balances in the world, with only 2 per cent regularly working long hours (more than 50 a week), compared to the international average of 13 percent.

 At the same time, in a study from Expert Market that divided the GDP of the world’s biggest economies by the number of hours worked per person, Denmark was ranked the fourth most productive country in the world (after Luxembourg, Norway and Sweden, respectively). What’s more, Denmark is consistently voted the best place in the world to be a woman – thanks to its exible parental leave policy, its earnings-based childcare system and its active promotion of gender equality.

To top it all off, national healthcare and education are virtually free. Add to this the famous Danish “hygge” – the art of appreciating life’s simple pleasures: family, friends, nature, soothing environments, a feeling of “a cosy togetherness”. To nd out more about Copenhagen and its exciting life, read our article entitled “The Hygge Life”, as well as other articles in this month’s issue that has received a refreshed layout.
