Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs Is Now a Member of TON; Will Host November Program

September 18, 2017

We are very excited to share our news that The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) has become a member of TON (The Outsourcing/Offshoring Network). TON is Denmark’s only cross-industry and cross-functional network of client organisations that focuses on outsourcing and offshoring, the goal of which is to improve outcomes and value. The two MFA departments that will be part of the TON network are the national investment promotion agency, Invest in Denmark, and The Trade Council whose focus is export support and growth, and is a strategic partner for Danish businesses on global public affairs.


The Ministry sees an opportunity to network and share knowledge with Danish businesses, garnering a nuanced understanding of the drivers and challenges facing Danish businesses abroad. This understanding will enable the MFA to develop relevant services tailor-made to these complex and important business areas and to appropriately steer foreign investment in Denmark in ways that directly serve the skills and technology needs of Danish business.


While the MFA already has top-level and comprehensive contacts with the Danish business community, having direct and regular contact to the segment of the Danish business community that is actively leveraging technologies and resources across the globe will help the MFA to be more effective in targeting and delivering their services. This closer contact will also enable Danish organisations exploring new markets and opportunities to more effectively take advantage of the services the MFA have supporting growth in Danish industry.


The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will host our next program, being held on November 9, 2017. We will be sending out details shortly. Please contact Katie Gove at kg@trellis.dk if you’d like to hear more.
