The mineral and hydrocarbon strategies expired at the end of 2013. There is therefore a need for a new strategy in the period from 2014 to 2018 to offer new specific proposals as to the direction in which Greenland should go the next five years. The strategy will also identify the areas which should be strengthened in order to support the development of the area of mineral resources activities.
The strategy contains a number of new initiatives in the following areas:
- GeoSurvey Greenland
- Sustainable development (Environmental protection, Is the infrastructural framework aligned to the needs of the mineral resources industry?, Labour market/employment, Training, Health and social sectors and Citizens, local community and stakeholders)
The focus of the strategy is on the new initiatives to be implemented by 2018.
