“As the Arctic transforms, so the Arctic will transform the world”
Following an economic summit meeting in Anchorage, Alaska, the Inuit Circumpolar Council has agreed to set up a task force that will lead to the creation of a new body that they want to call the International Inuit Business Council.
“With the tremendous and growing interest in the Arctic it is time to gather together and discuss options for how Inuit businesses might take the next step — the step across borders,” Jimmy Stotts, the president of ICC Alaska, said March 30 in a news release.
The ICC decided to hold an economic summit in 2014, when they issued their Kitigaaryuit Declaration at a general assembly held in Inuvik.
