I’ve recently returned from the Mineral Exploration Roundup in Vancouver, where there was a lot of excitement in what is happening in Yukon.
Investors from both Canada and abroad expressed a lot of interest in investment opportunities here and commented on the degree of economic activity happening in our territory.
People were impressed with Yukon’s long period of economic growth, population growth, our record level of employment, increases in private sector investment, and the entrepreneurial spirit of Yukoners.
In a world where many places are facing economic uncertainty, it seems the economic success of our territory and the number of opportunities here has not gone unnoticed by those looking for a place to invest.
As premier, I was proud of our territory and the things Yukoners have been able to accomplish in the last 10 years – it wasn’t always this way.
But, with hard work, careful planning and a commitment to stay the course I believe that Yukon can continue enjoy the benefits of prosperity.
