The Arctic — Territory of Dialogue International Forum to be held to be held in Arkhangelsk on 29-30 March 2017

Arctic Forum 2017 Arkhangelsk

Russia will host the 4th International Arctic Forum, the theme for which is "The Arctic: Territory of Dialogue" at the Lomonosov Northern (Arctic) Federal University, Archangelsk. 

The ‘Arctic: Territory of Dialogue’ 4th International Arctic Forum Exhibition is a professional platform for presenting Arctic projects, engaging in constructive dialogue, sharing experience, identifying solutions, and consolidating the efforts of the scientific community, business, government, and civil society, with the aim of developing the Arctic carefully and responsibly.

The decision about this international Arctic Forum was announced by the Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin at the conference International Cooperation in the Arctic: New Challenges and Vectors of Development. 

"We've decided to hold the Arctic — Territory of Dialogue International Forum in Arkhangelsk on March 29-30, 2017. The forum is traditionally attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin," the Deputy Prime Minister said. It is not coincidence that the two-day event will take place in Arkhangelsk, located near the White Sea in Russia’s northwestern Arctic corner. The event receives direct support from the Government of the Russian Federation. 

Dmitry Rogozin, who is also Chairman of the State Commission for Arctic Development, claims high ambitions for the event: 

"The 'Arctic: Territory of Dialogue' International Arctic Forum, which will take place in Arkhangelsk in March next year, seeks to achieve ambitious goals. As part of this event, we plan to demonstrate Russia's significant achievements in developing the Arctic despite the current political situation and the international pressure on Russia," Rogozin says.

The forum has not been held for the last three years, during which time new technologies have been developed for work in the Arctic, Rogozin said.
