The 12 municipalities comprising Business Region Aarhus were gathered for the annual city council conference in the city of Skanderborg to debate the strategy for 2022–26. Among the speakers – in addition to the three mayors currently holding the presidency – were Bjarne Corydon, editor-in-chief of Dagbladet Børsen, and Lia Leffland, managing director of the Danish Academy of Technical Sciences.
Business Region Aarhus consists of the municipalities Hedensted, Horsens, Skanderborg, Samsø, Odder, Norddjurs, Syddjurs, Randers, Silkeborg, Favrskov, Viborg and Aarhus. The 12 municipalities make up Denmark’s largest growth area outside the capital region and represent a total of one million inhabitants, half a million jobs and 46,000 companies.
