Long-Term Cooperation of Murmansk Region with Northern Europe as Model of Partnership in the Arctic
November 25, 2015 16:41


The Murmansk Region is a border region, and thus strengthening good-neighbourhood relations with the Northern European countries and extending geography of international cooperation in various spheres is one of the major priorities of the regional policy, the governor of the Murmansk Region Marina Kovtun reported at the plenary session of the IV Murmansk International Business Week.
"We highly appreciate this cooperation and are ready to use it fully as an instrument for our social and economic development", – Marina Kovtun noticed.
The main attention is focused on development of trade relations, introduction of energy saving technologies, improvement of boundary and customs infrastructure, and development of transport and communication systems.
Links in the field of health care, science, culture, and education are boosted. One more major sphere of international cooperation in the Arctic is nuclear and radiation safety.
Marina Kovtun attracted special attention to the ColArctic program. It is a unique instrument that enables development of local and regional initiatives of the border territories in eight regions of four countries, such as the Murmansk and Arkhangelsk Regions and the Nenets Autonomous Area of Russia, the Norwegian provinces of Finnmark, Troms and Nurland, the Finnish Lapland and the Swedish Norrbotten.
47 projects have been recently implemented within the ColArctic program in the Murmansk Region jointly with partners from Finland, Norway and Sweden. They tackle three main priorities, such as economic and social development, common tasks of the regions, and person-to-person cooperation. The outcome is construction of sporting and tourist venues in Kandalaksha, Kirovsk, Apatity, Polyarnye Zori, Tersk and Kovdor Districts, Teriberk and Alakurtti, foundation of the Arctic expocenter in the atomic-powered vessel "Lenin", development of an  innovative biotechnology for the Arctic soil decontamination from oil products on the basis of mineral raw materials extracted in the Murmansk Region, and some other projects is developed.
It is a reminder that this year plenary session of the 4th Murmansk International Business Week is dedicated, in particular, to the aspects of developing international cooperation in the Arctic, and the role of cross-border cooperation in high latitudes. Representatives of 11 foreign countries are taking part in the forum.
