Under Secretary Victoria Prentis signing UK and Greenland Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)
UK and Greenland Memorandum of Understanding follows recent agreements with Norway and the Faroe Islands
The UK has today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Greenland to boost cooperation on fisheries matters.
It signals another step forward as the UK prepares to leave the EU’s Common Fisheries Policy at the end of December. The UK and Greenland both have a long history as fishing nations and the agreement will enable the countries to cooperate on a range of issues, including fisheries management, processing, research, marketing and distribution.
The MoU, which follows the recent agreement with Norway and the agreement with Faroe Islands, will come into effect on 1 January 2021. It was signed via video conference by Fisheries Minister Victoria Prentis and Greenlandic Minister of Fisheries, Hunting and Agriculture Jens Immanuelsen.
