Mission Statement for the U.S. Embassy in Denmark

Our two countries enjoy vast economic ties, historic military cooperation, and deep cultural and family connections. The U.S. Embassy in Copenhagen represents the U.S. Government, protects U.S. citizens and interests, and supports the U.S. Government’s policies and programs through bilateral engagement in security, business, and outreach to the Danish people. The U.S. Embassy’s three strategic goals are: SECURITY – keeping the people of both our countries safe; COMMERCE – strengthening trade and encouraging economic growth, innovation, and entrepreneurship; and RELATIONSHIPS – expanding people-to-people ties and growing our historic and close relationship.
