Denmark’s TechPlomacy initative 

The Office of the Tech Ambassador has a global mandate and a physical presence across three time zones in Silicon Valley, Copenhagen and Beijing, thus transcending borders and regions and rethinking traditional diplomatic representation in the process.

TechPlomacy is an acknowledgement of the key role that technology and digitalisation plays and will increasingly play in the future for individuals and societies alike. It is also a recognition of the political and global influence that the tech-industry has in the 21st Century. Technology will contribute to solving some of the most acute global challenges and bring about a positive transformation with enormous potential for people around the world.

The TechPlomacy initiative was launched by the Danish government in 2017. The purpose of the initiative was elaborated in the Government’s Foreign and Security Policy Strategy 2017-18.
