His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark will lead a large Danish-Greenlandic delegation promoting Greenland’s business community during the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention in Toronto, Canada. The convention, which is one of the world’s leading conventions in the mining industry, attracts upwards of 26,000 guests from 125 countries. During the visit, HRH The Crown Prince will also promote Danish architecture and the Danish design approach to urban development.

HRH The Crown Prince will visit the international mining convention PDAC in Toronto March 3-4, 2019.

HRH The Crown Prince will be joined by the Government of Greenland’s Minister of Mineral Resources and Labour Erik Jensen; the Danish Minister for Energy, Utilities and Climate Lars Christian Lilleholt; the Confederation of Danish Industry; the Greenland Business Association; and more than 30 Danish and Greenlandic companies in showcasing Greenland as a mining destination.

The Greenlandic and Danish companies represent various business sectors including transportation, energy, logistics, insurance, and telecommunication and consultancy. The participating companies are part of the value chain of the mining industry and other industries in the Arctic.

HRH The Crown Prince will inaugurate the Danish-Greenlandic booth on the first day of the convention and meet representatives from Danish and Greenlandic companies. On the second day, HRH The Crown Prince will give the opening speech at the “Greenland Day” event, which highlights Greenland’s geological potential for mineral extraction and the possibilities in Greenland for foreign investors.
