In St. Petersburg, the business program of the VIII International Forum "Arctic: Today and the Future" ended. The topics of the Forum discussions covered all areas and current aspects of the development of the Russian Arctic. The discussion was carried through the prism of adopting a law on the development of the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation, mentoring and educating the young generation, developing volunteering and international non-governmental interaction.
The forum brought together all parties interested in the development of the Arctic, who were able to discuss important and sensitive issues in a constructive manner. "This makes it possible to say that the legislative framework regulating activities in the Russian Arctic will be improved," said Yulia Zvorykina, director of the Autonomous non-profit organization Institute for Research and Expertise of Vnesheconombank.
