Relative to other OECD member countries studied, the ageing strategy of the Danish government is quite robust, even ambitious. The strategy effectively balances two sets of measures and priorities, corresponding to the two main objectives of the ageing strategy: containment of rising public expenditures (pensions, public wages, healthcare, etc.) and maintenance of capacity. Three major dimensions of the ageing strategy can be identified: i) the human resource aspects, designed specifically for the central government; ii) the institutional and welfare aspects, which entail public sector‐wide restructuring; and iii) the adaptation of management tools.
