The National Association for Danish Enterprise, Dansk Arbejde, founded the Diploma of the Danish Export Association and His Royal Highness Prince Henrik’s Medal of Honour in 1982 in close co-operation with the Royal Danish Court and the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Diploma and medal are awarded in recognition of an outstanding effort in promoting Danish products and services abroad.
Jury and presentation of the award
A jury chaired by His Royal Highness Prince Henrik decides who is honoured with the award, which is given approximately fifteen times a year worldwide. His Royal Highness Prince Henrik, another member of the Royal Family or a worthy representative of the Royal Danish Court presents the winner with the diploma and medal in the recipient’s country.
The Danish Export Association administers the award in close co-operation with the Danish Trade Council and the embassy in the recipient’s country.
