GN in Greenland
Seven assistant deputy ministers and deputy ministers from the Government of Nunavut traveled to Nuuk last week for two and a half days of meetings with their Greenlandic counterparts.
Jeff Heynen, who coordinated the trip for the Department of Executive and Intergovernmental Affairs, says the trip served three purposes: it was a learning opportunity for future leaders, an opportunity to develop bilateral linkages between departments, and a way to enhance the relationship between Greenland and Nunavut.
The group met 15 – 20 senior officials from a variety of departments, Heynen said.
Following that, individual departments met with their counterparts in the Home Rule government.
Jamie Flaherty, TK of the Qulliq Energy Corp., also traveled with the group and met with the head of Greenland’s power corporation, Nukissiorfiit.
