Denmark will of the seven nations be the country there most take care of the export, and as the most important export will agriculture be number I. The danish foreign minister Jens Otto Krag, and the danish minister for agriculture will in this days be in London for discus the danish export to England, with the minister of the free market plans, Mr. Reginal Maudling and minister John Hare.

    Denmark has as well know a large export of agriculture, mostly milk, butter, cheese and pigs to Germany, and also to France, but England will be the north important user of danish agriculture, but it will still be necessary for Denmark to keep the connection to German and the other european countries there use danish agriculture export.

    Germany use a lots of danish milk and every morning will danish milch and butter be exported to this country. Of a total land area, comprising 4.232.000 hectares, about 95 per cent was in productive used in 1955. The principal agriculture export being butter, cheese, meat products, and eggs, the largest group of livestock are cattle and pigs. The pig population will be about 4.9000.000. Most of the pig production is for bacon, for sale in the UK. Exports of other pig meat are at times considerable though they fluctuate with the conditions obtaining in UK. A considerable production and export of canned pork and meat has been developed in recent years.

    This will be the reason for this little country on the discus about a free market area, between the seven other nations. Denmark has only there export of agriculture, and since this will be important for the country to keep, and at the same time keep a closer connection, both to the seven, and to the six, has the country to think a little bit over the connection to the seven.
