Facts about Greenland

Until World War II, Greenland was closed and self-sufficient economically. During the war, the country was supplied by the USA, which established a number of bases, of which all but three were closed down after the war. Today only the military airbase Pituffik (Thule) in North Greenland is left.

Greenland ceased to be a Danish colony in 1953 when Greenlanders became equal citizens of the kingdom of Denmark. In 1979 the country achieved Home Rule status and authorized to have its own parliament. In 2009, the country's status changed as the socalled 'self rule' was introduced. Instead of 'Home Rule Government', today we simply refer to the 'Greenland Government'.
