SPIEF 2018Uncovering the Potential of the Arctic through the Northern Sea Route
The Arctic has recently been high on the agenda both for Russia and for foreign governments. For us, the Arctic is not only about mineral resources. It is not only about the shortest trade route between Asia and Europe or the most convenient naval harbours. For us it is a challenge, like space was in the 1960s, and how successfully we are able to work in the Arctic will in large part determine the success of our country.
