Arctic market outlook

Major development projects are under way in the Arctic involving a diverse range of sectors including energy, seafood and infrastructure. These projects will also create economic possibilities throughout their supply chains and require work forces skilled at operating in Arctic conditions. But concern is growing that growing protectionism globally may restrict international trade and collaboration, which could put Arctic projects at risk.

What development opportunities are in the Arctic and what are their requirements? What can be done to prevent restrictions on trade and collaboration in the Arctic, or at the very least, ameliorate their effects? How can we make sure that industries, R&D institutions and government institutions work jointly to produce a responsible outcome for economic development in the Arctic? How do we ensure that we have the best possible knowledge when creating trade opportunities in the Arctic?

Session format: 5-minute introductions followed by armchair conversation

Confirmed speakers: 

  • Terje Søviknes, Minister of Petroleum and Energy of Norway
  • Sigrid Ida Simonsen, County Counselor for Culture and Industry, Troms County - Connectivity
  • Leonid Mikhelson, CEO, NOVATEK
  • Prof. Eberhard Sauter, Head of the Technology Transfer Office of the Alfred Wegener Institute and Executive Committee member of the German Association for Marine Technology (GMT)
