None of it surprising.

DK has and will buy French military equipment.
And DK has and plans to deploy a logistic unit to Sahara.

Special forces have also operated in Sahara and were scheduled to be deployed there again in a not so distant future.

France has lead and carried the main burden in fighting Islamists in central Sahara (USA deals with the western most part of Sahara) but due to the political unstable situation in Mali in particular (there was a recent military coup there, and the plotters omitted to inform France before carrying out the coup) France is now planning to withdraw partially from heading the current international coalition, of which DK belongs. Instead it is hoped that a genuine international coalition will take over, where France will only be one country among many.
Not least because France has many other military commitments in Africa and their garrisons are beginning to be stretched thin.
The problem is of course who should lead the coalition that is bound to take over from France?
USA springs to mind, but they are not particularly interested, to put it mildly!
Britain. No, not their turf and militarily that would be a major challenge.
Canada would be an obvious choice, but desert warfare if not natural to Canada and it would be difficult to sell in Canada. That are currently focusing on what is happening in the Arctic.
ANZAC - not their turf and would they have the capability let alone the political will?
Russia? No interest, no gain, no support. Too far away as well.
Iran - Would like to! But none of the countries in Sahara want Iran anywhere near!
Turkey? - The most likely candidate, but politically unpalatable for western European participation. Turkey has established a foothold in Libya and may wish to expand. Their autonomous drones have proven remarkably efficient in Libya - and no one are interested in knowing the details...
China? - Not now. China is rapidly expanding it's political and economic influence in sub-Saharan Africa and is in no way interested in Islamists interfering with that! But China will have plenty to do protecting their interests there in the years to come, and is unlikely to focus on Sahara.

Africa has now taken over from the Middle East in being the hub of Islamist movements, so that's where the fighting will take place in the next 10-20 years.

Joachim, along with other military attaches, has been invited to attend the Bastille Day celebrations on 14th July which, as you no doubt know, traditionally includes a large military parade down Champs Elysee.

Looks like the Order of Dannebrog.

It is the Order of Dannebrog, to a full dress uniform.

Had he worn a gala uniform he would have worn the blue scarf.
We can't see it, but I'm sure he is also wearing the stars of the Order of the Elephant and the Grand Commander's/Commodore's Cross to the Order of Dannebrog.
He will certainly also wear any French orders he may have.

"A great product is not always enough if you want to be successful abroad. You need to understand the business culture as well. General Prince Joachim met today with the Danish Defense Industry Delegation to Paris 28-29 SEP to talk about exactly that - French business culture."

Which is of course true.

Some mistakes typical of inexperienced Danes is that bring with us our informal way of dealing with people, when going abroad on business.
Addressing a Doktor Kampmann, who has a long education in economics behind her, with "du" (informal you and Danish and German) and first name, may not always be the right approach!
Nor is getting to the point within the first minute or so when dealing with say a Japanese businessman.
And so on and so on.

I don't know how it is in France, but it's my impression you won't get into too much trouble if you as a rule use formal you and mr./mrs. last name.
Joachim should know all about that with his extensive knowledge of French culture.

One of the perks of being a defense attache...
Being wined and dined, but somebody's gotta take one for the team.

"Today, two classes from Helsingør Gymnasium visited Paris and looked past the Defense Department for a talk with General Prince Joachim about military cooperation and security policy seen through French eyes."

I wonder why he received this honor. What's his contribution to Denmark?! Or is he the Danish honorary consul? But in that case, why did he receive his decoration in Paris? It seems he is most famous for making rum...

A good guess would be for importing Danish goods for many years and for aiding Danish businesses on the islands - and for knowing the right people, for many years...
