The government presents reform proposals on Tuesday

In addition to Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen (S), Minister of Finance Nicolai Wammen (S) and Minister of Employment Peter Hummelgaard (S) will also participate.

Together they will present a proposal called “Denmark can do more”. It appears from an invitation to the press conference.

The government has long announced that it intends to come up with proposals for reforms with a slightly longer term.

In his latest closing speech in the Folketing, the Prime Minister announced that the government will try to pass a number of reforms that will make Denmark “richer”, “greener” and “more skilled”.

Since then, the government has, among other things, held a conference where it stated that it would gather inspiration and good ideas from, among others, the business community and trade unions.

One theme may be to increase what is called labor supply – that is, the amount of labor available to companies.

Last week, Minister of Employment Peter Hummelgaard convened the social partners for a discussion on how to urgently provide more labor.

But in the same connection, he announced that discussions about benefits and the like did not come to the table at those conversations. They belonged in a discussion on major reforms, he said.

Whether these are the ones the government will unveil on Tuesday is not clear, however.
