Sustainable Growth the Nordic Way
WEB MAGAZINE - February 2018

Regional business co-operation for a thriving Arctic region

The business sector and the Arctic regions already work closely across borders, but they need to step up their partnerships if companies are to develop and thrive in the region, according to a new report funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers.

The report – Arctic Business Analysis – identifies the need to develop and promote the spirit of entrepreneurialism in the Arctic, and calls for work to publicise the business opportunities in the region and to showcase it as an attractive and sustainable market for investment and economic development.

The writers envisage that individuals, companies and investors interested in setting up in the Arctic will use the report as a tool. It offers a joint platform to support existing work and promote new initiatives concerning sustainable economic development and growth in the Arctic.

Arctic Business Analysis is a joint publication in English by the Nordic Council of Ministers and the Arctic Economic Council. The report is in four sections: entrepreneurship and innovation, public/private partnerships and business co-operation, culture and creative industries, and the bioeconomy.
