The Arctic: From opportunities to jobs

‘We are now embarking on the next phase of our efforts in the Arctic. We will pursue an active policy to translate knowledge and resources into jobs and value creation,’ said Prime Minister Erna Solberg.

Prime Minister Erna Solberg and Minister of Foreign Affairs Børge Brende launched the Government’s status report on Norway’s Arctic policy, the first of its kind, in Hammerfest today. The Government has proposed a total allocation of nearly NOK 3 billion for High North activities in 2015, an increase of well over NOK 0.5 billion from 2014.
