Social Agenda of the Regions: New Global Crossroads
5 September 2022
The Russian Arctic and the Far East, which for many years have been viewed as sites of resource projects, are becoming two separate macro-centres of social and economic force in the new geopolitical realities. Russian business’s growing interest in the northern regions is not only due to the expansion of Russia’s range of influence in the Arctic, but also the emerging system of preferences for residents of the Russian Arctic. The emergence of knowledge-intensive service companies, the pivoting of investment projects to the Asia-Pacific and BRICS and the alternative logistics flows that have resulted from this, increased tourism, and new infrastructure have all combined to create a solid foundation for international cooperation. Such issues as community development, the strengthening of horizontal social ties, the development of human capital, and the preservation of a unique ecosystem in the urbanized territories of the Arctic and the Far East should remain a key element of Russia’s social and technological progress.
