Crown Prince Frederik's Working Visit to Canada: March 3-6, 2019
 
HRH The Crown Prince to go on Danish-Greenlandic promotional campaign in Canada

His Royal Highness The Crown Prince travels to Canada in early March to lead a Danish-Greenlandic business promotional campaign at one of the world’s leading mining conferences in Toronto. The Crown Prince will also participate in a number of business arrangements focused on urban development and architecture

The international trade fair for mining, Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC), held in Toronto the days of 3-6 March 2019, is the focal point when His Royal Highness pays a visit to Canada’s largest city. The Crown Prince, together with Greenland’s Minister of Mineral Resources and Labor Erik Jensen, Denmark’s 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, will participate in a business promotional campaign targeted at investment and business development in Greenland.

On the trade fair’s opening day, The Crown Prince will open the Danish-Greenlandic stand and meet with representatives from the Danish and Greenlandic companies, among other things. More than 1000 companies and 26,000 participants are expected to take part in the fair.

On the second day of the visit, His Royal Highness will open and give a speech at the event “Greenland Day”, which will focus on Greenland’s extraordinary geological and mineral potential. In addition to this, The Crown Prince opens the “Open Architecture Exhibition” and takes part in arrangements focused on innovative solutions for urban development and architecture.

The visit rounds out with an official reception for key Danish and Greenlandic players in Canada.

The full program will be announced later.

Crown Prince Frederik will be present at the world's largest raw material fair in Canada, thereby creating greater awareness of the Greenlandic raw materials."

Thanks Eya & Polyesco :flowers:

I think Frederik enjoys this job.
He has a close connection with Greenland and I'm sure a genuine wish to help the nation as much as he can - apart from the fact that he probably know quite a few Greenlandic members of the delegation personally.

It has been said by more than one that if you go to Greenland, you either fall hopelessly in love with the country - and it's people. Or you go crazy...
It's safe to say Frederik belongs in the first category. :greenlandflag:

polyesco 03-03-2019 03:41 PM

:previous: I completely agree Muhler
I think Frederik gets filled with pride representing both Denmark and Greenland abroad.

and of course a special eye on Australia too ;)

It is such fun to have the Crown Prince in my home town of Toronto; the city is indeed busy with many visitors for the PDAC. I am curious however why the Prince was on Bloor Street; the pictures with big black cars are taken at the corner of Yonge and Bloor so that I wonder if his hotel is located in this very upscale area? I do hope he brought warm clothes as the city will be experiencing -23 degree temperatures tomorrow.:bang:

The Danish consulate is located on the corner of Bloor and Yonge street. He would have been attending meetings there.

Frederik really looks like a man who enjoys his role, duties and job.
He really has found his place in life. Both as husband, father, Crown Prince, future King.
