Have your say

The Danish ambassador to the UK has met up with business leaders in the Capital to discuss a range of issues including renewable energy development.

Anne Hedensted Steffenson was one of the first visitors to be welcomed to Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce’s headquarters by new chief executive David Birrell.

She was accompanied by Professor Stuart MacPherson, the new consul general for Denmark in Edinburgh, and the recently retired consul Norman Irons.

They discussed trade and business opportunities for chamber members and Danish firms.

Mr Birrell, who was joined by fellow chamber directors Liz McAreavey and Graham Birse, said: “Ms Steffenson agreed that there is much more potential for companies in Denmark and Scotland to partner in the renewable revolution, especially in on and offshore wind.”

Ms Steffenson said: “We’ve agreed today to work to develop stronger links between Scotland and Denmark for business and Danish participation in the Scottish Low Carbon Investment Conference.”
