Orkney to shine at Arctic Circle conference

Orkney is to be showcased at the Arctic Circle Conference, later this month.

Orkney will be showcases to its northern neighbours later this month, when Orkney Islands Council’s leader and interim chief executive host a presentation at the Arctic Circle Assembly.

Councillor James Stockan and interim chief executive John Mundell have been asked to speak on the topic of “Orkney — Europe’s Gateway to the Arctic” during the second day of the event in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Mr Mundell said the invitation is a chance to promote the potential economic of Orkney to Arctic Circle countries and beyond, and to foster “an alternative international family for Orkney, in a post-Brexit world”.
