General Project Objectives: The main purpose is to analyse: The excpected impact  on employment, competition, location choice of business and economic growth of a Fehmarn Belt fixed link.
By dynamic and strategic effects we understand the economic effects in terms of increased productivity and more competitive markets that are not included in traditional cost-benefit  analysis of a transport infrastructure investment. Total economic benefits from an infrastructure investment is the sum of the benefits accounted for in a cost-benefits analysis and the benefits occuring from the dynamic and strategic effects.
