ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Three Alaska Native regional corporations whose business interests and lands would be affected by oil and gas and shipping expansions in the arctic are joining together in a formal partnership.

The Alaska Dispatch News reports (https://bit.ly/1SPx5ZZ ) that Arctic Slope Regional Corp., NANA Regional Corp. and Bering Straits Native Corp., all of whose lands are within or near the Arctic Circle, announced on Thursday the creation of the Inuit Arctic Business Alliance.

Bering Straits Native Corp spokesman Matt Ganley says the alliance will work at the state and national levels to ensure that arctic enterprises benefit communities in the area.

The alliance board, headed by ASRC president and CEO Rex Rock, has three representatives from each corporation. It met in Barrow this week and will meet in Nome next year.
