The Purpose of the conference

Economic independence and political autonomy.

What will it take?

 

Future Greenland 2019 is the sixth in the series of Future Greenland conferences that the Greenland Business Association holds every second year in the beautiful Katuaq cultural centre in Nuuk.

Future Greenland is Greenland’s largest business conference, with around 450 participants engaging in lively debates and side events. The conference attracts a very broad circle of people interested in social issues, companies, politicians from Greenland’s government and municipalities, officials, students and participants from Canada, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Scandinavia and elsewhere.

The conference is broadcast live on KNR, the Greenlandic national television channel, and can also be followed on the net, with online streaming from the debates and side events. In this way, the Greenland Business Association underlines the fact that the conference is open to all stakeholders and decision-makers who are willing to participate in a committed and inspiring debate on the goals and directions of Greenland’s development.

On 13 May 2019, the Greenland Business Association is also hosting a B-2-B event at the Hotel Hans Egede, in which all interested companies are invited to participate and establish links with relevant networks.

The purpose of the conference

The purpose of the conference is to anchor the social debate on the development of Greenland more firmly in a common recognition of the fact that we cannot create the necessary economic growth without a healthy business community, more private companies and greater exports.

Economic growth 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 upon the welfare state, and Greenland’s political freedom of action will be impaired.

Commercial enterprises, a larger private sector, more entrepreneurs and investments in new industries such as mineral resources and tourism, together with improved infrastructure, are key drivers of economic development.

Consequently, business policy must be given a more central place on the political agenda, and a political response must be found to the greatest challenge facing the business community right now – the increasing shortage of labour.

Under the heading “Education is Greenland’s most important resource”, the Greenland Business Association has therefore entered into a partnership with IMAK, the teachers’ organisation, in order to be more involved in the political reform work of creating better primary schools.

We have a great need for many more children and young people to acquire the necessary skills through their primary schooling to be able to complete the qualifying programmes of vocational training that are so much in demand – both among companies and for important social functions in the public sector.

In addition to the education theme, the conference’s title also refers to what politicians, businesspeople and other important stakeholders can do together to realise Greenland’s ambition of greater economic independence.

A much stronger national economy is the basic prerequisite for achieving greater political autonomy, both within the possibilities of the current framework of the Government of Greenland, and especially if the vision of Greenland as an independent nation is to be realised.

What do the words ‘economic independence’ and ‘political autonomy’ really mean?

What does economic independence mean in an increasingly globalised world, in which the trade of all countries in goods and services and the increasing mobility of labour makes everyone dependent on everyone else, and the giants on the internet cross all borders? What kind of economic growth would be required for the national treasury to be able to manage without external financial support? How large is the welfare gap, with and without block subsidies? How much more skilled and diligent will we all have to be? What conditions will foreign investors impose, if they are to be willing to take on commercial risks?

What does political autonomy mean, if a country cannot be economically independent? What is autonomy in a world of different regional, national security and trade policy interests and alliances? Where can Greenland find its rightful place, with its vast land area, its many unutilised resources and its tiny population? How do we find the right partners, and what alliances should we enter into? Is the Danish Commonwealth in or out, when we speak of political autonomy?

These concepts are often bandied about without any clarity in the public debate, and even if we can more or less agree on what the words themselves mean, what will be really be required in concrete terms in order to allow Greenland to one day declare itself economically independent and politically autonomous?

With these questions, the choice of the heading for Future Greenland 2019 opens up the possibility of a debate on a series of themes and issues – a debate that could not be more relevant than it is right now.

This is an important debate, in which the Greenland Business Association wishes to participate on behalf of many Greenlandic companies, and it is a debate that we, together with other interested parties, wish to strengthen with “Future Greenland 2019”, because we need as many people as possible to get involved in the discussion of how, together, we will shape Greenland’s future.

With Future Greenland 2019, we are thus once again emphasising that conditions for the business community cannot be viewed in isolation from the broad developments in society, but that all considerations of political reform, including the establishment of a constitutional commission, will have an effect on everyday business life. It is a matter of the future framework conditions for the companies.

Contents of the conference

Day 1, on 14 May will deal with the concept of political autonomy.

What political ideas lie behind the ambition of Greenland becoming an independent country? How far is the distance from Greenland’s political freedom of action today, within the Act on Greenland Self-Government, to the possibility of leaving the Danish Commonwealth and establishing an independent state with its own constitution?

What models are possible on the pathway from self-government to independence? What do terms like “free association” really mean?

What is Greenland’s current security policy foundation, in partnership with Denmark and under the protection of NATO? What will be the security policy doctrine of an independent Greenland? Who will take care of and pay for the current civilian tasks performed by the defence forces?

How will Greenland build up the social institutions required by an independent country? Can we copy the administrative structures of other countries, or are there any other solutions? Is the population large enough to solve all the tasks a state has to perform? How large will the public sector be?

Day 2, on 15 May will deal with the concept of economic independence.

Greenland has rich resources in the sea and underground, and possesses great potential as a tourist destination. Our fishing industry is efficient and generates a high income for society, but the country’s unilateral dependence on seafood exports must be supplemented by revenues from tourism and exports of raw materials, etc. The dependence on exports and the need to import consumer goods, fuels, machinery, building materials, etc., leaves the economy of Greenland open and vulnerable to international economic cycles.

The development of new industries, such as in mining and the tourism sector, will require foreign capital, skills and labour, while the level of education in the domestic workforce, two-thirds of whom do not have a qualifying vocational education, must be significantly improved. Otherwise, local businesses and the country’s citizens will become mere observers to the developments.

Greenland has one of the world’s largest public sectors: Even before the Act on Self-Government opened up the possibility of transferring administrative areas to Greenland, the public sector occupied 40% of the workforce.

All else being equal, the plans for self-determination will imply a growing public sector – competing for labour with the private sector, which will be required to finance an increased tax burden for the new public tasks currently paid for by the Danish state.

How much economic growth will be required in the private sector, and how much growth will be required in exports, to allow the country to replace the block grant with its own new tax revenues? What will it cost to operate the remaining state functions in an independent Greenland? Are we prepared to earn a lower gross national income per inhabitant, compared to, for example, Scandinavia?

How can the private sector be strengthened to generate the necessary growth – in competition with the growing public sector?

How do we realise the enormous potential of a better-trained workforce? How do we improve the quality and output of the education system?

On the basis of a number of plenary presentations, four side events will be organised on each conference day, at which conference participants will have an opportunity to go into depth with several of the issues raised.

The format for the conference will be plenary presentations and debates in the hall and panels, plus approximately eight side events in the afternoons. The conference languages will be Greenlandic, Danish and English, with simultaneous interpretation available.

The conference MC will be Martin Breum.

Call for papers

Call for papers – written contributions to the Future Greenland conference

The Greenland Business Association is hereby issuing a call for papers in advance of the business conference Future Greenland 2019, which has been given the title “Economic independence and political autonomy. What will it take?

About the conference

What do the words ‘economic independence’ and ‘political autonomy’ really mean?

What does economic independence mean in an increasingly globalised world, in which the trade of all countries in goods and services and the increasing mobility of labour makes everyone dependent on everyone else, and the giants on the internet cross all borders? What kind of economic growth would be required for the national treasury to be able to manage without external financial support? How large is the welfare gap, with and without block subsidies? How much more skilled and diligent will we all have to be? What conditions will foreign investors impose, if they are to be willing to take on commercial risks?

What does political autonomy mean, if a country cannot be economically independent? What is autonomy in a world of different regional, national security and trade policy interests and alliances? Where can Greenland find its rightful place, with its vast land area, its many unutilised resources and its tiny population? How do we find the right partners, and what alliances should we enter into? Is the Danish Commonwealth in or out, when we speak of political autonomy?

These concepts are often bandied about without any clarity in the public debate, and even if we can more or less agree on what the words themselves mean, what will be really be required, in concrete terms, to allow Greenland to one day declare itself economically independent and politically autonomous?

Progress and prosperity also depend on the degree of commitment invested in the public debate. It is therefore vitally important that the issues in the debate are made concrete and relevant for all of the parties involved. Consequently, the GBA is now inviting interested parties to submit written contributions to the conference.

About the call for papers

A “call for papers” is an invitation to submit written contributions/scientific productions/discussion papers on topics relating to the conference.

A principal objective of the conference is to go a step further on the theme of “effective and legitimate political decisions”. How can we renew and strengthen society’s ways of creating good and effective decisions?

Written contributions to Future Greenland 2019 must therefore in general keep to the theme: Decision-making processes in Greenlandic society – challenges and solutions.

The call for papers has the following deadlines:

Deadlines

* 1 January 2019: Submission of a brief description of the content of the written contribution (max. 300 words)

* 14 January 2019: Confirmation sent of the admission of the written contribution

* 1 April 2019: Submission of the completed written contribution (4-10 pages)

* 1 May 2019: Publication of the written contribution

Requirements

Written contributions may be submitted in English, Danish or Greenlandic within the outlined deadlines.

The contributor will retain the copyright to the submitted contribution.

The Greenland Business Association reserves the right to use the contribution during the conference.

No financial support will be provided for the production of written contributions.

Contributions should be sent to Erik Holmsgaard: erik@ga.gl

 

Price essay

Prize essay

The Greenland Business Association (GBA) wishes to stimulate interest in economic policy and social development, and is therefore establishing a ‘Future Greenland Prize’ for the best essay at a level corresponding to a Bachelor report or Master’s thesis.

The prize will be awarded at the Future Greenland Conference on 14 May 2019 for the best essay on the subject: Greenland’s possibilities for achieving economic independence and political autonomy – requirements and consequences.

The essay may be in written form or in an electronic media format (radio, television, internet).

Subject of the essay

At the Future Greenland conference on 14 and 15 May 2019, the GBA wishes to approach a clearer understanding of the concepts of economic independence and political autonomy.

Possible topics for the essay could include:

  • How large will the real economic growth of Greenlandic society have to be to create the new tax revenues that could replace the block subsidy and cover the cost of taking over the tasks currently performed by the Danish state? How much will the workforce and the population need to grow to secure the necessary supply of labour?
  • Analyse possible scenarios for social developments when the workforce in both the public and private sectors is expanded to meet the demand entailed by the necessary economic growth.
  • Analyse the possible industrial development scenarios within mining, tourism or other industries which with some probability can be expected to generate the economic growth needed to create a sufficient tax base.
  • How can the concept of economic independence be defined in relation to Greenland’s extremely open economy, with a high dependence on imports and exports in a small domestic market?
  • How can the concept of political autonomy be defined in a globalised world characterised by growing interdependence with regard to access to markets and the achievement of security?

 

  • Describe possible scenarios for the development of Greenland’s public administration structure, if the public sector is to take over all the tasks currently undertaken by the Danish administration – preferably on the basis of a comparative analysis of the administrative structures of other small states.

Other topics that fall within the overall theme may also be included in the competition. 

Who can participate in the competition?

The competition is open to all, and the essay may be written in Greenlandic, Danish or English.

The essay must be accompanied by a short summary of no more than three pages, describing the chosen issue, the theoretical considerations and the main conclusion.

Assessment criteria

The essay must be written at a level that would earn an assessment of grade 10 or 12 at Bachelor or Master’s degree level at an institute of higher education.

Emphasis is placed on the essay contributing to new angles in understanding Greenlandic society and the process of change that a growing economy and increased import of labour will entail, in parallel with the development of new and existing businesses.

Assessment committee

The GBA has appointed an assessment committee consisting of Gitte Adler Reimer (Rector, University of Greenland), Anne Merrild Hansen (Professor & Head of the Arctic Oil and Gas Research Centre, University of Greenland), Rasmus Leander Nielsen (Assistant Professor, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Greenland) and Naja Paulsen (Head of Department, Faculty of Journalism, University of Greenland).

Prize award

The winner of the prize will be announced at a ceremony at the Future Greenland competition on 14 May 2019. The winner will be awarded a prize of DKK 15,000, and will hold a presentation on the assignment as part of the award ceremony.

Deadline for submission of the essay

The essay and summary must be forwarded electronically (via e-mail) by 22 April 2019.
