Bilateral cooperation with central maritime growth markets should be intensified in order to increase the marketing possibilities of Danish maritime enterprises. Furthermore, liberal trade policy views should be advocated on market access for the maritime industries in EU free trade negotiations with third countries as well as on strengthening cooperation with other leading European maritime nations that share Denmark's interest in open, global markets.
In cooperation between the authorities and the industry, the promotion of Denmark as a maritime nation should be strengthened – as a flag State as well as a place of establishment for shipowners and Danish manufacturers of maritime products, solutions and technologies – in order to create global awareness of this.
Information about the potential within export and investment promotion should be strengthened, especially for small and medium-sized enterprises, as well as the potential for maritime visibility in connection with delegation visits from, for example, export markets.
As part of the marketing of Blue Denmark, central maritime events should be attracted to Denmark, including possibly the new global forum, at suitable intervals.
Regulation should establish the required framework for promoting new technology, innovation and energy-efficient solutions through, inter alia, the IMO so that first movers are also taken into account.
Efforts should be made to secure better international enforcement of international regulations and conventions as well as effective reactions to violations so that that economic incentive for non-compliance with, for example, IMO environmental regulations is removed.
The authorities and industry associations should strengthen the spread of and knowledge-sharing on the development of equipment for enforcing international environmental requirements, including the sulphur emission requirements, and should ensure specific tests hereof.
