Newsletter July/August 2019
Chairman’s Corner – Poul G. Kristensen 

Dear Members and Friends of DCCC,

Time is flying and this newsletter will be the last before the summer holiday.

The 11th of June we finished the Team Management training with the module of Culture & Communication. We will resume the training in September and there a few seats left, so if you want to join or register your colleagues for it, do it soon.

In June we also held the first VISA event “Danish Visa Application Guide” with the Danish Consulate and from now on we will try to do it twice per year. We want to thank the Consul General Jakob Linulf, Tom Meyer Jensen and the Consulate Visa team for their great presentation and support!


As already announced in our newsletter in May, we re-started the activities for the H.R. Group with a workshop about N.A.I. (Non Authority Influence) and how to use it in your company. Remember that besides the HR Group we are also working with Legal & Finance.
If you want to register yourself or some of your colleagues for the working groups, please contact the GM of DCCC Shanghai, Laura Li by email or phone.

In our last newsletter we had a misspelling on Peter Krarup’s name. So sorry for that Peter!

This month you will also read a notice from the VL group in Shanghai. The whole text is in Danish because this group operates only with Danish speakers. Please keep in mind that you can also can use our platform and newsletter to announce your own groups and activities.

Remember to follow our activities on our website and through WeChat. You can also follow DCCC Beijing & DCC-SC, and if you decide to participate at theirs events, you will just pay the normal member fee.

Reserve the below dates:
22nd August Tax Update for Multinational Companies
30th August Welcome Back BBQ
19th October Business Person of the Year Gala Ball

The Early bird price for the BPOY is 850RMB per person. This year we will also use Shangri-la Jing’ An and have only 200 seats, so hurry up to secure your seats before it’s too late.

As you know we are always looking for sponsors for our gala ball and if you want to know more about the details and benefits please contact DCCC’s GM Laura Li.

DCCC office will be closed during the summer holiday. Have a nice summer holiday!

Sincerely Yours,
Poul G. Kristensen

Danes Worldwide Corner

Danes Worldwide had a presence at the 2019 People’s Democratic Festival held on the island of Bornholm. Secretary General Anne Marie Dalgaard met with several of the politicians who are negotiating the composition of the government to be established in the wake of the recent parliamentary election, such as Pia Olsen Dyhr, Leader of the Socialist People’s Party (SF), Social Democrat Mogens Jensen, and other key players.

In addition, we have submitted suggestions for topics to be considered by the future government. These topics include voting rights for expat Danes, rules for family unification, retention of citizenship, and rights associated with tax funded pensions.

We continue to communicate with these politicians and to make efforts to draw attention to our key advocacy areas.



Update from the Royal Danish Consulate

Culture Performances
In May and June there were many great Danish performances visiting Shanghai which started with the engaging concert by Concerto Copenhagen, followed the angelically singing boys from Copenhagen Boys Choir, then the punk rock band band Iceage, and finally the the Danish – Chinese experimental ballet and music show, Little Everything and Peony Cosmos.

Visa meeting
Danish companies are sending employees, customers and partners to Denmark in increasing numbers, thus more and more visa applications are received at the Danish visa centre and processed by the visa department at the Consulate General. To give HR managers a better insight and understanding of the visa process the DCCC and the Consulate General hosted a workshop, where they could learn about the Danish visa rules and procedures. The DCCC and the Consulate General is planning to host 1-2 workshops a year.

Danish Pop-up event
The Consulate General co-organized a Danish lifestyle pop-up event at one of Shanghai’s most popular shopping malls, The Place 南丰城. Everyone interested in Danish “hygge” and products had the opportunity to do their shopping among the 12 Danish brands. Visitors could also enjoy performances by Danish musicians, butter cookie decoration workshop and H.C. Andersen fairy tales performances and a hotdog and talk with Lars Pach.

Shanghai Pride
Nordic film day at the Consulate General under the theme: “Share the Pride”. For the fifth time, the Danish Consulate General in Shanghai supported a film day with the Shanghai Pride film festival. This year there was extended support from the Embassy in Beijing and the other Nordic consulates including the Finnish, Swedish and Norwegian. Four Danish short films were shown to represent Denmark this year: Project Baby, Renovation, October Boy and Cognitio. Besides watching some engaging short films, there were also Q&As with directors and actors from the films, and an interesting panel discussion with representatives from each of the Nordic countries. Throughout the day, more than 200 people dropped by, and because of limited space and the huge interest, an extra film evening was hosted shortly after.

Hvad er danskerlisten?
Danskerlisten giver Udenrigsministeriet mulighed for at kontakte danskere i udlandet i en krisesituation.

I den slags situationer kan det være nyttigt for dig at få information om en sikker og hurtig måde at forlade området på.

Det er frivilligt, om man som dansker ønsker at registrere sig.
Danskerlisten kan bruges ved både korte rejser og længerevarende ophold i udlandet. Det nye system minder automatisk brugeren om at opdatere sine oplysninger senest 12 måneder efter sidste logon.
