Royal Greenland struggling to bring in Chinese workers

Royal Greenland, a fishing company owned by the Greenlandic government, is having a hard time getting permission to bring in Chinese workers to make up for the lack of local skilled labour. We’re talking rather modest numbers here: while Sermersooq municipality has authorised the company to employ five Chinese produktionsspecialister during the high season in Paamiut, in the south of the island, Qaasuitsup authorities refused or are withholding permission to bring as many as 15 workers to two locations in the North-Western municipality.
