Although Danish leaders argued that obtaining 2% was „unrealistic“ and that Denmark`s defence structure could not absorb such an influx of financial resources, even if approved, Danish leaders estimated that it was a deliberate effort to reach 2%. „We welcome the outcome of the political negotiations for the Danish defence sector and the support given to the agreement through the political parties in the Danish parliament. This agreement brings Denmark closer to achieving NATO`s defence investment and spending objectives. The new defence agreement will strengthen the Danish armed forces.

At Terma, we are ready to support Denmark in this development. A coalition of parties in the Danish Parliament has agreed to attach 1.5 billion kronor ($229.7 million) to the agreed defence budget for 2023, which would represent 1.5% of gross domestic PRODUCT for this year. The agreement was negotiated as part of the new defence agreement for 2018-2023. The historic agreement is a direct response to persistent criticism from opposition leaders that Denmark must cooperate more actively with NATO and its northern defence partners to provide a more credible deterrent to counter the threat of Russian aggression in the high regions of the North Sea and the Baltic Sea.
