8 Letter from the AMBASSADOR 6 I look forward to working with all of you to promote President Obama s agenda. What an extraordinary year 2009 was for the U.S.-Denmark relationship. President Obama visited Copenhagen twice. We also welcomed the First Lady, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, five other cabinet members, Senators Kerry, Bond, and Inhofe, twenty members of Congress, governors, mayors, Chicagoans and Oprah. The visits of these and many other Americans in government, business, sports, and culture have provided great opportunities to celebrate and deepen the friendship among Danes and Americans. The alliance between the United States and Denmark has never been stronger. My thanks to AmCham for your continued support to the Embassy since my arrival on July 29, 2009, especially for co-sponsoring the USA Booth at Bright Green during COP-15. I look forward to many more joint efforts to promote American business opportunities in Denmark. Despite the economic difficulties many companies have faced over the past year, there is a sense of continued optimism among AmCham members. I share your positive view that 2010 will be a better year than last year and that we can now see the international tides changing. We at the U.S. Embassy will continue to press forward on many fronts, but in particular in helping to build even more robust commercial ties between the United States and Denmark. This will include major as well as smaller events to bring together innovative American and Danish firms to find ways they can partner in building better, smarter, more sustainable products that will benefit consumers in both countries and beyond, particularly in the clean energy sector. We also look forward to acting on President Obama s program to help put Americans back to work and our nation back on a path to sustainable economic growth. A key element in supporting this effort will be the implementation of the National Export Initiative (NEI), launched in his recent State of the Union address to Congress. The NEI aims to double U.S.

Fulton (2009-) 7 exports over the next five years and support two million jobs in the U.S. This will be a whole of government approach to promoting U.S. exports, including the creation of an Export Promotion Cabinet reporting to the President consisting of top leaders from the Agriculture, Commerce, State, and Treasury and Departments, the Export-Import Bank, the office of the United States Trade Representative, and the Small Business Administration. It will also provide substantially more resources for the Commerce Department to help U.S. firms increase exports. As Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke announced, the initiative will include three areas of focus: A more robust effort by the U.S. Government to expand its trade advocacy in all its forms, including educating U.S. companies about opportunities overseas, direct-ly connecting them with new customers, and advocating more forcefully for their interests; Improving access to credit in the wake of the financial crisis, especially for small- and medium-sized businesses that want to export; Continuing the rigorous enforcement of international trade laws to help remove barriers that prevent U.S. companies from getting open and fair access to foreign markets. These areas are consistent with AmCham s priorities, and I look forward to working with all of you to promote President Obama s agenda. As Secretary Locke said when announcing the NEI, From the advent of the phone, to the automobile, to new drug therapies and the Internet, America s strength has always been its peoples ability to create and sell products and services that help others around the world lead healthier, wealthier and more productive lives. This describes the best of American business. I thank and congratulate each of you for playing your part in living up to this aspiration. Laurie S.

10 8 Interim Chairman Mark Luscombe Citi Country Officer Citi Message from the Board The AmCham Denmark organization has made great strides in its policy and advocacy work in 2009 under the leadership of Stephen Brugger and the dedication of its capable staff. This is especially evident in the high level access it has achieved within the Danish government. AmCham met no less than seven times in 2009 with key decision-makers in Danish politics, voicing the concerns of its members, building relationships and strengthening its position as the leading voice for international business in Denmark. The progress AmCham has made in the past is just a beginning. We believe that our efforts will lead to more growth and new opportunities for our members and for Denmark as a whole. AmCham remains committed to this crucially important purpose and with your active support will continue to make great strides in the coming year.

18 16 highlights

19 AmCham Denmark ACCESS Throughout the year, AmCham Denmark worked to provide members access to key business and political leaders through a series of meetings and events. Whether speaking out on behalf of its members, facilitating personal face-to-face contact, or just drawing attention to the important contributions international companies make to Denmark, its economy and its ability to compete, AmCham excelled in CONNECTIONS 2009 presented outstanding opportunities for AmCham members to connect with other high level executives, diplomats and politicians in a variety of settings. From AmCham s 10th anniversary celebration to the IOC and COP 15 in Copenhagen to technical knowledge exchange conferences like the Analytical Instruments Committee s ESAC and critical information sharing OSAC events, the strength of AmCham s network was clear. SERVICE AmCham makes it a priority to provide top-notch service to its member companies. Whether assisting with high level executive visits, providing high quality opportunities for company promotion, or helping companies get their key messages out to AmCham s extensive membership network, AmCham members benefitted in 2009.

21 Policy & Advocacy Access to Key Decision Makers 19 AmCham Denmark s policy efforts gained momentum in 2009 starting with the January Board of Directors round table with then Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen. AmCham s efforts and access to key decision makers continued throughout the year, communicating members issues at several key opportunities and paving a solid path for a stronger voice for international business in Some important policy highlights of 2009 include round table meetings with Margrethe Vestager, Social Liberal Party Leader in February; Minister for Business and Economic Affairs, Lene Espersen, in May; Minister for Education, Bertel Haarder, in September; and Minister for Justice, Brian Mikkelsen, in November. Each of these meetings focused on communicating the issues that face internationally operating companies in Denmark, Danish and non-danish, as they pursue solutions to Denmark s shortage of highly qualified labor. These meetings have spurred action in several areas including non-eu driver s license exchange and international school capacity. Additionally, AmCham s Healthcare Committee dedicated 2009 to pushing for solutions to issues in the Danish healthcare system, specifically those issues that prevent the timely integration of innovative treatments and the practices involved in performing clinical trials that prolong and complicate the process. In a round table meeting with Minister for Health and Prevention Jakob Axel Nielsen in April the committee outlined the challenges and the real threat of diminishing investments in Denmark if these issues are not addressed. To further emphasize their importance, Am- Cham dedicated the 2009 Foreign Investors Summit to these issues. Diagnosing the Danish Healthcare System was held in September in the historic Landstingsal in Christiansborg and featured focused discussions with both politicians and the General Director for the Danish National Board of Health, Jesper Fisker. To round out the year, Am- Cham presented its 2009 Foreign Company of the Year award to Iron Mountain A/S at the traditional Ambassador s reception at Rydhave in October. A true testament to the contributions that international business makes to Denmark, Iron Mountain s Managing Director Søren Eltorp, eloquently accepted the award on behalf of the company s employees, partners, and loyal customers. Danish National Board of Health General Director, Jesper Fisker, presents the challenges and dilemmas to the Danish healthcare system.

23 AmCham s Trans-Atlantic Access Strengthened in Ample opportunities presented themselves in 2009 for AmCham to take part in discussions on issues of trans-atlantic importance. Its access to the right officials throughout the year gave AmCham Denmark a clear line for communicating both the issues, and some proposed solutions to barriers affecting trade across the pond. Hosting the United Nation s COP 15 conference, Copenhagen was a year-round hot spot for climate and energy policy. Already in February AmCham Denmark had its first meeting with U.S. climate policy experts Stephen Eule from the U.S. Chamber s Institute for 21st Century Energy and Norine Kennedy from the U.S. Council for International Business to discuss the challenges to reaching an agreement at COP 15. Rounding out the spring, AmCham and partner Climate Consortium delivered an executive breakfast briefing on the Energy and Climate Change Challenge featuring experts Mark Spelman, Accenture, and Katherine Richardson, Copenhagen University. AmCham kicked into high gear in the fall with several events focusing on climate change. From a business perspective, climate change legislation can have far reaching implications. In a joint event with General Electric, CEO Jeffrey Immelt and COP 15 Host, Danish Climate Minister Connie Hedegaard, discussed just what steps GE has taken to be a leader in implementing climate change initiatives throughout the corporation. Finally, AmCham pulled out all the stops, closely cooperating with the U.S. Embassy to produce the USA Pavilion at Bright Green, DI s Climate Conference held during COP 15. This cooperation allowed AmCham to continue to build upon its trans-atlantic ties in meetings with, among others, Gary Locke, U.S. Secretary of Commerce and Arnold Schwarzenegger, Governor of California.

27 AmCham s Professional Networking hits New Heights in One message was clear in 2009 no matter what else happens, business goes on. That s what AmCham members experienced in a number of informative and insightful, high-quality events. In February, AmCham held the first Outlook 2009 at ISS with a look at successfully navigating a company through the economic downturn. Experts addressed the challenges and pitfalls of developing business strategies within a time of economic uncertainty and some good advice for minimizing bad decisions. The second Outlook 2009 held at EDS took this a step further, looking at how, when, and what to communicate internally and externally during an economic downturn. Both events were well attended by the who s who in AmCham s member network. AmCham committees were also stellar forums for information exchange. In its ninth annual Executive Seminars in Analytical Chemistry (ESAC), the Analytical Instruments Committee shared the latest greatest technologies with about 220 leading scientific researchers. Equally active in 2009 was the OSAC Denmark Security Council, which in three timely events informed leading executives about the current state of security in Denmark, and how best to manage the security and business continuity challenges that might follow an influenza epidemic and the masses anticipated in Copenhagen during COP 15.

29 A Decade to Remember 27 AmCham hit a key milestone in years of representing international business in Denmark. We felt this was a milestone worth celebrating, so that is exactly what we did. We celebrated both at the Annual General Meeting held at A.P. Møller- Mærsk in March and at the Anniversary Celebration and reception held at Tivoli Castle in May, reminiscing AmCham s past and looking forward to its next decade. We also celebrated the companies and individuals in our membership, honoring their commitment and support throughout the years.
