Together for economic growth & development


Greater Copenhagen is a Danish-Swedish political co-operation. We are 85 municipalities and four regions that will build one of the world's most competitive metropolitan regions.

This is Greater Copenhagen

We want companies to have the best conditions for investing, creating innovations and attracting labour.  

We want citizens to have access to good jobs and be able to move freely across borders. 

We want universities, companies and public authorities, from Korsør to Kristianstad, to have the best conditions to cooperate and jointly develop green solutions, the region's cities and common infrastructure. Greater Copenhagen shall be a global centre for sustainable growth and green transport.

89 local and regional council chairs and mayors from Sweden and Denmark set the direction for Greater Copenhagen. We are driven by the desire to transform our metropolitan region through close and committed cooperation with the governments of Sweden and Denmark and with the EU.
