Denmark raises its growth outlook



Denmark now sees its economic growth matching the fastest pace in almost three decades, predicting an outbreak of the new virus variant won’t derail a boom in the Nordic nation.
Gross domestic product will probably expand by 3.9% this year, up from a previous forecast of 3.8%, the finance ministry said in a statement. The forecast, that would equal the increase in 2006 and hasn’t been exceeded since 1994, was first reported by Bloomberg.
The Nordic country — which has weathered the fallout from the pandemic as one of the best in the rich world — has some of the highest numbers of the omicron cases.
The country introduced new restrictions earlier this month, but stopped short of last year’s lockdowns, to fight the virus as infection rates jump to all-time highs.
