Chairman of the Digital Growth Panel and CEO of Danfoss, Niels B. Christiansen, looks forward to the future.

“If we proactively go for digitization, we can create as many jobs as we lose. They can become more exciting, highly competent and perhaps more well-paid. “

“But if we do nothing, the world will digitize and then it’s very likely that we’ll see robots automate and change jobs away from a form we know today,” he says.

He points out that all Danes will benefit if Denmark is able to go to bed. Denmark is good at it, but it is going too slowly if we continue to be in the front, he believes.
