Arctic connectivity

Business in the Arctic depends on reliable connectivity. Three subsea cable projects looking to circle the Arctic are currently being developed. If successful, these projects will be a game changer for both the Arctic and the global community, which will benefit from faster data flows.

What does increased connectivity mean for business potential in the Arctic? How can Arctic societies and businesses capitalize this potential breakthrough in connectivity? What opportunities are there to invest in IKT storage halls, cable and infrastructure in the Arctic? What other communications needs exist for businesses in the Arctic, and are they being addressed?

Session format: 5-minutes introductions followed by armchair conversation
