Future Greenland – Business Conference 9 -10 May 2017: Capital, Competence and Capacity

Future Greenland 2017: Capital, Competence and Capacity,

9 -10 May 2017 in Katuaq, Nuuk

About the conference

The GBA’s aim with the conference is to anchor the social debate on the development of Greenland more

strongly in a common understanding that without a healthy business community, more private companies

and increased exports, we cannot create economic growth. As well as venturesome investors, economic

growth also requires political reforms that will create a favourable business climate. If we fail in this, we will

be unable to pay for the many and growing demands of citizens on the welfare state, and Greenland’s

political freedom to act will be restricted.
 

The GBA wishes to strengthen the understanding that business development is a key driver of economic

growth, and that political action is required to create the right framework for this.

The conference is an invitation to a debate on what can and should be done to create the right conditions

for the desired business development.


The title of the conference is intended to encourage discussion of what politicians and the business

community can do in co-operation in order to enable Greenland, both internally and externally, to attract the

capital, competence and capacity that is required to create the desired development. If we are to succeed in

developing our existing businesses and creating new companies, such as in the mining and tourism sectors,

it will require major investments (capital), and there will be a need for well-trained labour and skilled

management, both in the companies and in the public administration (competence) – and, not least, there

must be ample access to both (capacity).


Economic progress and prosperity also depend on the degree of commitment invested in the public debate,

and it is vital that the issues discussed are made relevant and concrete for all parties involved.

Consequently, the GBA is now inviting interested parties to submit written contributions to the conference.
