The report finds that economic conditions in Denmark are slowly improving yet the long-term outlook will be influenced by Western Europe and industrialization efforts inside Denmark.
The report, authored by the World Bank's Loan Department, is split in two parts that look at the country's economic conditions and the use of the Bank's 1947 loan. The report finds that conditions in Denmark are slowly improving based on its industrial output, inflation control, limitation of consumption, and the small improvement in balance of international payments. The passage of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1948 by the United States Congress was clearly beneficial to Denmark's reconstruction efforts. The report concludes that the long-term outlook of Denmark will be influenced by Western European recovery and industrialization inside Denmark.
