She went on to say that that her recent visit has strengthen her belief that the presence of diversity plays a critical role in adding dynamism to any given work place. The less the religion is seen as a big issue, the least would be the overall problem.

Nationality is not an issue at all. Everyone is taken at their face-value and talks are held between everyone. Therefore, the language of Denmark and integration fall in place with each other and everyone.
