The TTIP Nordic Debate Investment Partnership EU-US Transatlantic and Regulatory Issues

5 November, 2015 The Marriot, Copenhagen

Arranged by British Chamber of Commerce in Denmark Event


The American Ambassador Rufus Gifford & Suhail Sundoo Danish Pakistan Business Council


Mariano A. Davies, President & CEO & Suhail Sundoo DPBCouncil

This event provides a forum for a Nordic regional perspective on regulatory cooperation in TTIP and how it will impact the regions trade with the US. Registration is closed!


Regulatory compatibility is at the heart of the TTIP negotiations, with it being cited as a key factor in restricting trade between the US and EU. This also applies to the Nordic economies – Denmark, Sweden and Finland – (excluding Norway and Iceland) with joint exports to the US of 16 billion Euro as of 2014.

Increased regulatory cooperation will boost growth, create jobs and improve consumer choice unmatched anywhere in the agreement. About 80% of the potential gains in TTIP hinge on such cooperation to reduce non-tariff barriers, known in trade terms as NTBs.

NTBs cost Europe an estimated 187 billion Euro in potential export to the US. This amount is 11 times the combined Nordic export to the US or 45% of the region’s global export. They are often high for certain industries, thus preventing market entry and limiting the growth prospects of SMEs. The EU identified nine sectors that will benefit the most from regulatory cooperation. For the Nordics, pharmaceutical, automotive and the food industries stand out. For instance Denmark’s pharma firms, Sweden’s auto industry and Finland’s food and engineering industries could see significant growth as a result.

Yet, Trade Unions (divided opinion), Civil Society and Environmental groups are alarmed about the risks of further regulatory compatibility. They warned it could lower European health and safety standards, reverse our environmental achievements and expose our financial system to more risks. Furthermore, in exchange for the promised export opportunities, Nordic SMEs (95% of all companies in this region) will be priced out or bought by large US corporations

They also question negotiators’ prudence in setting high standards, due to the lack of regulations preventing them from taking up corporate jobs in areas that they are negotiating. This means that large corporations are merely paying lip service to the discussions, knowing that they can circumvent future regulations by hiring a negotiator further down the line.

Event Objectives

This event provides a forum for a Nordic regional perspective on regulatory cooperation in TTIP and how it will impact the regions trade with the US. It allows the European Commission, along with governments and business/industry leaders to secure public endorsement of the deal by engaging civil society in an open debate on the pros and cons-a true reflection of European democratic ideals.

This model of public engagement leverages Denmark’s reputation for open dialogue.

 Pakistan – et nyt vækstmarked for handels- og serviceerhvervene


Fra venstre mod højre: Mr. Imran Afzal Cheema, Sec. Board of Investment of Pakistan, Kurt Damsted, Chairman Dpbc., Jens Alsbirk, Director EU & Int. Dansk Erhverv, Ambassadør Masroor Junejo, Embassy of Pakistan, Ambassador Jesper Møller Sørensen, Danmarks ambassadør i Pakistan, Tariq Sundoo CEO, Dpbc.
Danish Pakistansk Business Council afholdt i går i samarbejde med Dansk Erhverv, den pakistanske ambassade i København og Board of Investment of Pakistan en særdeles succesrig konference med over 100 deltagere fra både dansk og pakistansk erhvervsliv. Det foregik på Børsen i København og drejede sig om markedsmulighederne i Pakistan.

Blandt oplægsholderne var begge landes ambassadører, tidligere udviklingsminister Christian Friis Bach samt flere topdirektører fra betydende danske virksomheder.


Konferencen skal bane vejen for et større samarbejde mellem danske og pakistanske erhvervsvirksomheder til gavn for begge landes eksportudvikling. Der var stor interesse blandt de mange deltagere, som det efterfølgende netværksarbejde også viste. Mange nye bånd og aftaler blev knyttet, og der er ingen tvivl om, at vi fremover vil se at positivt resultat af denne vigtige konference. Pakistan er i rivende udvikling og er derfor et interessant marked for danske virksomheder. På seminaret fortalte Danmarks ambassadør i Pakistan, Jesper Møller Sørensen, om den seneste økonomiske og politiske udvikling i Pakistan og berørte markedsmulighederne for danske virksomheder.


Med en vækst på 4 % i 2012 og med sine ca. 180 mio. indbyggere er Pakistan på vej til at blive en betydelig økonomi og et stort marked.

Jens Alsbirk, Direktør for EU and International Afd. Dansk Erhverv var ordstyrer.

På vegne af Dansk Pakistansk Business Council takkede CEO Tariq Sundoo deltagerne, Jens Alsbirk, Jesper Juhl Jensen Dansk Erhverv, Den Pakistanske ambassade i Hellerup og ikke mindst de af oplægsholderne, som kom helt fra Pakistan, bl.a. Chef for Board of Investment of Pakistan og ambassadøren Jesper Møller Sørensen.

”Pakistan er et land med stort potentiale i forskellige sektorer med en meget venlig og liberal investeringspolitik” sagde Tariq Sundoo, som ser Pakistan som et kæmpe land med mange muligheder, og hvis investeringspotentiale ikke er opdaget endnu.

Der er et kæmpe potentiale i Pakistan, og landet ligger åben for danske virksomheder med mod på et eksporteventyr, sagde Kurt Damsted, Chairman of DPBC, og refererede til Børsen (5. marts 2014), der peger på vækstmulighederne i landet. Især den voksende middelklasse skaber nye muligheder.

Topchefer fra bl.a. Novo Nordisk og F.L. Smith har senest taget sig tid til den dagslange rejse til Pakistan. Begge danske mastodonter er klar over, at det er et marked, der skal satses på. Novo Nordisks topchef har for et par måneder siden været i Pakistan for at have en dialog med ledende politikere og aktører på området – herunder sundhedsministeren.

“Vi tror på, at vi ved at intensivere indsatsen i Pakistan på et tidligt stadie kan præge udviklingen af sundhedssystemet. Der ligger selvfølgelig også et forretningsmæssigt stort potentiale ved at være i Pakistan netop nu,” siger Lars Rebien Sørensen og peger på, at det netop er nu, hvor Pakistan er under opbygning efter årtier med uro, at man skal investere i landet.
Gruppeformand for Radikale Venstre og tidligere udviklingsminister Christian Friis Bach fortalte om sine personlige erfaringer fra sit officielle besøg i Pakistan.

Novo Nordisks vicepræsident Niels Lund og Ciklum berettede om deres erfaringer fra et mangeårigt kommercielt engagement i Pakistan.

Den Pakistanske ambassadør Masroor A. Junejo fra den pakistanske ambassade i København afrundede seminaret med tak til alle deltagerne og oplægsholderne.

WB-projekter 4 pct BNP-væksten i 2013-14

Bedre tilgængelighed energi


ISLAMABAD – Verdensbanken onsdag forventes at Pakistans BNP-væksten skulle nærme sig til fire procent i løbet af igangværende regnskabsår 2013-14, drevet af dynamisk fremstillings-og servicesektoren, bedre adgang til energi og tidlig genoplivning af investorernes tillid.
Verdensbanken i sin rapport ‘Pakistan Development Opdatering 2014 «, har forudsagt, at landets BNP-vækst vil være i området på 3,6 til 4 procent i løbet af indeværende finansår 2013-14 imod regeringens mål på 4,4 procent. Væksten er picking up, primært drevet af serviceydelser og produktion. Ligeledes har væksten forbedret i engros-og detailhandel, finans og forsikring. Stigning i væksten i storstilet produktion kom fra stærke præstationer af agro-og papirindustrien, jern og stål. Landbruget ser lidt under målet på grund af ugunstige vejrforhold. På efterspørgselssiden, fortsætter væksten at blive drevet af det private forbrug.Kredit til den private sektor er begyndt at stige igen, og havde bogført nominel vækst på 4,6 procent, på årsbasis, som i midten af marts 2014 Dog investering opsving privat er mild.; og meget af dette er arvet fra den fortrængning af den private sektors kredit ved statslig låntagning, der voksede tæt på nul i FY13.
Rapporten anslog også, at Pakistans budgetunderskuddet ville blive begrænset på seks procent af BNP (Rs 1560 milliarder) i løbet af FY2014 primært som følge af en forbedret skatteopkrævning og begrænset strøm og udvikling udgifter. Men FBR samling er lidt under målet. På udgiftssiden har energirelaterede tilskud blevet reduceret med toldtilpasninger.Men mens regeringen behandlet med bestanden af den cirkulære gæld, hvilket har resulteret i reduceret aflastning i de første måneder af året, cirkulære gæld genopstår.
de løbende poster er fortsat beskeden, omkring 1 procent af BNP, støttet af stærke pengeoverførsler og dynamik eksport, og den eksterne position er langsomt forbedret siden penge-og valutakurspolitik skiftede gear mod at genopbygge reserverne i november sidste år.
Ifølge rapporten, den offentlige gæld er fortsat over 60 procent af BNP, tillades af Fiscal Responsibility Law, og retfærdiggjort af sikkerhedsmæssige årsager. Som store budgetunderskud er blevet finansieret i stigende grad gennem indenlandsk låntagning har rollover risiko steget. Ekstern finansiering til rådighed for regeringen er knappe, men forventes at forbedre i de sidste to kvartaler.
Rapporten fremhævede tre kilder til risiko synes bekymrende inkluderet Pakistan importerer mere end det eksporterer, sidstnævnte begrænset af lav produktivitet og konkurrenceevne, begrænset adgang til pålidelige energi og besværlige erhvervsregulering. Politiske begivenheder holde udenlandske direkte investeringer og private investeringer lave, hvilket også påvirker valutareserver. Usikre politiske miljø underminerer investorernes tillid og trykker den økonomiske aktivitet. Den urolige sektors indenlandske energi fortsætter med at udholde en lang grundet kompleks arv på sin rundskrivelse gæld, som i modsætning til regeringens planer, kan påvirke størrelsen af den finanspolitiske tilpasning.
Pakistans Emerging Markets Bonds Index Plus (EMBI +) risikospredning holder dog faldende fra de høje niveauer, der vises ved starten af den nye administration. Markedets tillid til regeringens program bærer frugt, da EMBI næsten har halveret fra 1.011 basispoint i marts 2013 til omkring 468 basispoint, som 26. marts 2014. Regeringen har til hensigt at drage fordel af det og vende tilbage til de internationale markeder med placering af en 500 millioner dollar – 1000 millioner dollars Eurobond i fjerde kvartal af det indeværende finansår
