Chinese-Danish relations are foreign relations between the People's Republic of China and Denmark. Denmark recognized the People's Republic of China on January 9, 1950 and the two countries established diplomatic relations on May 11, 1950. Denmark was the first Western country to establish diplomatic ties with China. On February 15, 1956, the two countries upgraded diplomatic relations from ministerial to ambassadorial level and exchanged ambassadors. China has an embassy in Copenhagen. Denmark has an embassy in Beijing and 4 general consulates in Chongqing, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Shanghai.

China suspended ties with Denmark after its Prime Minister met the Dalai Lama and resumed them only after the Danish government issued a statement in December 2009 saying it would oppose Tibetan independence and consider Beijing's reaction before inviting him again.[1]
