The Arctic: Integrating Efforts to Achieve Strategic Growth
29 March 2017
17:00

The Arctic regions possess a wealth of experience in creating strategies for socioeconomic development. To carry out major projects, including those featuring international participation, requires both cooperation and collaboration. The formulation and implementation of such projects should take into consideration both regional strategies and shared strategies for the development of the Arctic as a whole. The sharing of accumulated experience in the practical implementation of these strategies takes on still greater importance when integrating efforts to achieve sustainable development. Russia is formulating its own socioeconomic development strategy in the Arctic using the mechanism of ‘support zones’. The development of industry is likewise being facilitated by the establishment of industrial clusters, which are being created in the Arctic with the support of the government. Issues for discussion: • Socioeconomic development tools for the Arctic; the creation of ‘support zones’ for development and ensuring that they function properly • Measures for supporting and attracting investment in industrial projects in the Arctic • The potential for diverse forms of cooperative participation in developing the Arctic, including international collaboration
