Nunavut MP and federal Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq opened the 2014 Northern Lights conference in Ottawa Jan. 29 with a luncheon keynote address highlighting the Arctic Council's new circumpolar business forum. "We envision the Arctic economic council to be a way for Arctic businesses to engage more directly with Arctic council states and indigenous permanent participants," said Aglukkaq, who chairs the Arctic Council. "It will facilitate and foster business opportunities, but it will do so with sustainable development in the Arctic in mind and it will contribute to a stable, predictable, transparent business climate." Members of the forum's task force will participate in a panel discussion at the conference Wednesday afternoon. (PHOTO BY SARAH ROGERS)
