Jan. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Denmark has taken over the rotating European Union presidency at a time of crisis, Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt said, listing four priorities the Nordic country will work for during its six-month term.

Denmark will work for a “responsible Europe” with budget discipline among member countries, Thorning-Schmidt said today at a Copenhagen press meeting. The country will also work to boost economic growth on the continent, promote green energy investments and improve safety, the premier said.
