05-30-2011 09:04 BJT

COPENHAGEN, May 29 (Xinhua) -- Denmark's liberal-conservative government has appointed a former Danish EU commissioner as the country's so-called "export ambassador" to China, local media reported Sunday.

The new role is expected to boost Denmark's trade ties with China.

According to Denmark's Berlingske Tidende newspaper, Danish Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen named Ritt Bjerregaard, a former EU commissioner, who also previously served as a minister for Denmark's Social Democratic Party, to the post.

"Ritt Bjerregaard is an extremely experienced and international politician," Rasmussen told Berlingske, of the commissioner who also served as Mayor of the Danish capital Copenhagen.

"This is particularly true with regard to her experience as EU commissioner, but also in relation to her work as Mayor, which strengthened Copenhagen's international cooperative relationships."

Bjerregaard's main task will be to create opportunities for Danish businesses in China by heading Danish trade delegations there, and building partnerships between businesses in the two countries, Berlingske said.
