Denmark: Greenland’s Beijing Representation Opens


Greenland’s actuality, A Journey to the West, the most well-known classic novel in China, is one of the few that has been translated and dubbed for our national broadcasting TV using Greenlandic voices. At the official opening of the Greenlandic Representation on Monday at the Royal Danish Embassy in Beijing, Vivian Motzfeldt, the Greenlandic minister for statehood and foreign affairs, said, “This shows that even though we are very far away from each other, we can build a bridge and a common future with mutual understanding and efforts.”

Along with other ministers and ambassadors, the guests included Greenland’s Minister for Statehood and Foreign Affairs, Vivian Motzfeldt, Jacob Isbosethsen, head of the Greenland Representation in Beijing, and Danish Ambassador to China, Thomas Østrup Møller.

“For the past 20 years, Royal Greenland has been a part of Qingdao. Other businesses, such as Polar Seafood, have made significant contributions to trade and exports to China, according to Motzfeldt.

She conveyed her appreciation for Greenland’s cooperation with China to the Chinese government and the Chinese People’s Institute for Foreign Affairs.

Furthermore, the Danish Embassy hosted a thought-provoking tourism seminar at the Greenland Representation in Beijing on Tuesday.

During her welcome address, Motzfeldt stressed the value of tourism to the Greenlandic economy.

“The Greenland government has made significant investments in a new tourism strategy and policy. She told the Global Times, “The Parliament and Government have decided to build three new airports in Nuuk, Ilulissat, and Qagortoq and to expand the runways.”

Along with introducing Greenlandic gastronomy and the stunning Arctic Circle, guests included Joe Chan, director of Polar Club 66 Co Ltd, head of Visa and Consular Affairs at the Royal Danish Embassy Charlotte Duelund, and CEO of Air Greenland Jacob Nitter Sørensen.
