In unusually scathing terms, the Danish Shipowners’ Association has taken issue with the Danish immigration law, which the association believes forces competent employees out of the country and prevents accomplished foreigners from working in Denmark, even for a short period of time.

Carsten Mortensen, chairman of the Danish Shipowners’ Association and CEO of one of Denmark’s largest shipping companies, Norden, informs ShippingWatch that for years the association has been paying visits to politicians and authorities and presented their viewpoints with reference to particular cases and examples of how the immigration rules constitute a barrier for the industry which is characterized by having an international workforce.
