More than 60 percent of the total area of Denmark is used for agricultural purposes. This allows it to produce two times more food than its total national food requirements. Denmark produces a variety of food products for both domestic use and exports including vegetables, seeds, grass, milk, meat and organic products. The significance of this industry can be understood with the fact that it accounts for more than twenty percent of total commodity exports for Denmark.
The Danish agricultural industry is historically characterized by freehold and family ownership. Regarding vegetable production, Denmark is a leading producer of grass-, clover- and horticultural seeds. Within animal husbandry, it includes dairy and beef cattle, pigs, poultry and fur animals (primarily mink) – all sectors that produce mainly for export.
The Tourism Industry of Denmark contributes around 125 billion dollars of revenue in the country's economy. Rich history, natural beauty, sandy beaches and countless tourist attractions attract millions of visitors to Denmark every year. The country not only receives visitors from Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, and Norway but also welcomes global tourists as one of the top travel destinations in the world.
Denmark’s diverse energy sector plays an important role in the country’s economy. It is believed that coal power fulfils 21.6% of the country’s total energy requirements. Also, Denmark ranks 32nd amongst the countries that export crude oil, and statistics suggest that crude oil contributes a 33.4% share to cover Denmark’s energy demands. At the same time, 18% of energy supply comes from natural gas. Remaining 27% energy demand is supplied by renewable sources. This includes biomass, solar, wind power, nuclear and geothermal energy projects. Effective energy policies also helped Denmark to significantly reduce the country’s energy consumption. These policies and strategies made an overall 6% decrease in total energy consumption in Denmark.

Denmark has made major investments in the transportation sector. It has developed a modern transport network of motorways and railways. It has three major airports, namely Copenhagen Airport, Billund Airport and Aalborg Airport that serve more than 33 million passengers per year. On the other hand, five other airports provide better connectivity throughout the country. Other than the land and air routes, the country has also developed a number of ports that not only serve around fifty million passengers per year but also handle more than 100 million tons of cargo shipments each year.

Main sub-industries are manufacture of pharmaceuticals, machinery, and food products.
90% of the vehicles manufactured in Spain are shipped abroad to 130 Countries. The Spanish Auto-Parts Industry is another key factor to the success of the automotive sector. A thousand of companies belonging to 720 entrepreneurial groups are located in Spain, providing a fast and customized service to manufacturing plants. This industry turns over more than 27.500 million Euros, 60% belonging to exports.
