    - The Danish e-commerce strategy is centered on rapid adoption, implementation, and exploitation of e-commerce in all sectors of the economy, rather than a production-led strategy.
    - The economy has an international advantage in B-to-B e-commerce diffusion.
    - The diffusion of the Internet based on B-to-C e-commerce has been less successful than in the other Scandinavian countries and the United States.
    - E-commerce adoption has not led to rapid structural changes in the employment pattern.
    - The government is strongly committed to addressing the digital divide, implementing public e-procurement as an e-commerce driver, and supporting e-commerce research and development.
    - There is a policy commitment to utilize e-commerce with a welfare twist: to further develop the current welfare society model for a better quality of life; new scientific achievements; better public service; improved healthcare; more exciting jobs; more interesting cultural offerings; and a less stressed workforce with more time for individual development.
    - There is a lack of commitment towards fighting structural and legal inhibitors (such as educational aspects, taxation, and venture capital).
