Kate Sheppard and I were both very taken with the line we heard from someone here that in Denmark “we used to export pigs, now we export clean tech.” But is it true? According to Statistics Denmark, the country’s biggest export category is “Machinery (excl. Transport Equipment)” which is presumably where the clean tech is located. Running in a slight second place is “Live animals, Food, Beverages And Tobacco” which I assume includes the pigs and pork products.
