Double growth doesn't seem to be that far off, looking at the actual numbers.

The number 500.000 is for Stockholms Län by the year 2030.
Region Hovedstaden has a projected growth of 217.000 in that same period.

Of course Stockholms Län and Region Hovedstaden aren't directly comparable, but close enough to see that "double" seems about right.

And before anyone suggest adding Region Sjælland, then that wouldn't change much, as they'll have negative growth in that same period.

But again hard to compare the future since its quite impossible to draw a trendlike from the current situation.

Anyways it's an interresting topic about the differences between the cities. Copenhagen is very dense compared to both Stockholm and Oslo which creates this "big city feeling". Of cause this is an important thing for tourism too.

Why do you think so? Helsinki, Tallinn, Turku/Åbo, even a large metropolis St. Petersburg are located relatively close. Also, Uppsala, Västerås, Eskilstuna, Örebro, Södertälje are close and well connected with the major city in the region.

In my oppinion, the location of Copenhagen is the most favourable in terms of logistics in whole Scandinavia. No ferry or train traffic from the continental part of Europe can reach Sweden/Norway without bypassing this city. That is a huge advantage and, I believe, it gives many advantages to the Danish economy.

What's more interesting is that Malmö seems not to benefit as much from whatever is driving Stockholm and Göteborg. Worse education levels? The "wrong" kind of immigrants? The educated and their growth occurring outside Malmö in Skäne?

In any case I think we will increasingly compete together rather than against each other. Less "visit Sweden" and more "visit Scandinavia" and so on. It's a big world and even collectively we're minute. I think we'll be doing more of integrating our infrastructure and most importantly our human capital to compete for the best jobs and industries as a larger region.

Indeed, cooperation and cultural/linguistic similarities is what makes this region stronger, integrated and more competitive.
However, some minor competition between the regions and cities is alright, because otherwise we would end up stagnating.

At least we're getting the first Scandinavian Hooters:

That's cool.!

Unfortunately max burger is planning to open more "resturants" in the city. Can't really understand they got a good start since the burgers aren't of same quality as burgerking and MCD.

Max is way better than MC Donalds "burgers" and I'm guessing that they could rival Burger King in quality.

Everything is better than McDonald's. However I still think Burger King is in the lead, and way better than Max, when it comes to fast food chains (not restaurants).

But interesting with so many new challengers in this market.

However, maybe we got Hooters before Sweden and Stockholm, but instead they got TGI Fridays.

Halifix for me.

Copenhagen and Stockholm are both way behind - Næstved will be getting the first Sceandinavean Carl's Jr. outlet (never heard about it)!

Næstved will rock..!

Anyways, i dont think we should be jaloux on sweden when it comes to food. The swedish cousini isn't really more sophisticated than meatballs and sauceses - made by horse of cause

Half of your posts seem to be related to some sort of Denmark vs. Sweden or Copenhagen vs. Stockholm discussion, any chance that you could take them to this thread where they belong from now on? It is getting a bit old.

The fact is, that the swedish national dish is meatballs with tart, and IKEA use horsemeat for the balls.. Maybe it's your favorit dish, but I don't think the majority of the danish population share that taste.

But anyways, I'll try to be more constructive from now on.

I think I prefere Swedish meatballs to Danish frikadeller...

Anyways, this is a stupide debate - let's just end it.

The tax reduction for hotels could be good news for both hotels and Copenhagen Airport:

Oh yes for sure competition is best for all. Cannot disagree with that. All I'm saying is that going forward there are economic reasons for more cooperation, in scaling our capabilities to remain competitive. What we are seeing with 8millioncity, which can be extended easily to Stockholm, is very encouraging compared to the past in which each country stares blindly at their own small part of the big picture.

Well, we are all the puzzle pieces in the same picture. At least, this is how the rest of the World sees us.

Copenhagen will lack 17,000 dwellings in five years' time.

I am just watching Kyst til Kyst on DR1, they are talking about the floodings of Amager, Christianshavn and Indre By that will be flooded 1 time a year if the sea levels rises 1 metres in 100 years as DMI predicts.

There were some conceptual drawings of a flood barrier in the harbour entrance that was in the same time doubled us as a beach.

The price was estimated as 4 billion for both a northern and southern barrier kroner and it was Cowi that made the report but I can´t find it on their website.

So does anyone has the link to the report.

The solution seems quite simple though, just keep the cranes dancing.

Hopefully the debate about skyscrabers on refshalvøen will come to life again in near future.
