New Sval­bard White­pa­per publis­hed

The Nor­we­gi­an government publis­hes a new white paper about every 10 years to defi­ne a frame for the fur­ther deve­lo­p­ment of Sval­bard. The latest one was issued 17 April as “Storting­s­mel­ding No 22, 2008-2009” and under­li­nes the future impor­t­ance of coal mining and sci­ence for the local eco­no­my and deve­lo­p­ment. Also tou­rism will be deve­lo­ped care­ful­ly, focus­sing on cen­tral are­as around Lon­gye­ar­by­en. A watch­ful eye will be kept on crui­se tou­rism in the East Sval­bard natu­re reser­ves, an issue that has recent­ly been dis­cus­sed con­tro­ver­si­al­ly. The impor­t­ance of local jobs and eco­no­my is empha­si­zed.

Important mile­stone: “Storting­s­mel­ding
