Arctic Imperative Tour Pulls Up To Unalaska
Tuesday, September 04 2012
With an eye toward Arctic development, a group of investors, government officials, and journalists toured Unalaska this weekend.
The group spun off from the three-day Arctic Imperative summit in Girdwood. After the conference ended, they spent more than a week touring communities with strategic importance for Arctic business, like Wainwright and Barrow. Unalaska was the last stop on the tour.
The city welcomed the travel group with a reception at the Museum of the Aleutians on Friday evening. New State Representative Bob Herron and Alice Rogoff, the founder of the Arctic Imperative summit, both praised Unalaska. They said it has the potential to attract investors and heavy industry alike.
