THE ARCTIC: REALIZING A NEW ECONOMIC SPHERE

11:45-13:00 Pavilion 3, Amphitheatre
The economic development of the Arctic – particularly as it relates to the sustained extraction of hydrocarbons – will require extensive infrastructure construction, robust transport logistics, new fleets of ice breakers and tankers, as well as communications systems and industrial operations that can stand up to the harsh climate. What technical, scientific and industrial knowhow in the subarctic regions can be leveraged in the development of the North? How are these challenges leading to new innovations in the sector, as well as potentially fostering stronger international and interregional cooperation amongst regional players?

Highlights

If we do not utilize Arctic resources, it is apparent that it will not be possible to provide the world with sustainable development.

Sergey Frank
President, Chief Executive Officer, PAO Sovcomflot

For Russia today, the Arctic is a geostrategic priority. Considering the scale of the Arctic territory Russia occupies, the country has no other option but to become the leader in research and development of this region.

Alexander Tsybulskiy
Deputy Minister of Economic Development of the Russian Federation

Human capital will be the most limited resource in resolving the economic problems of the Arctic.

Sergey Frank
President, Chief Executive Officer, PAO Sovcomflot

The Arctic region must be seen as a new national mega-project.
