Globally Influential Finland in the Arctic Region – an opportunity and a challenge
Arctic Advisory Board
The Arctic Advisory Board brings together the key Finnish stakeholders involved in activities in the Arctic. The mandate of the Advisory Board is to support and strengthen Finland’s Arctic policy and advance the achievement of its objectives.
The sectors where Finland has specialised Arctic expertise include environmental technology, shipping, sustainable tourism, telecommunications, meteorology and transport systems.
Arctic cooperation takes place on various levels. A key body in Arctic cooperation in Finland is the Arctic Advisory Board appointed by the Prime Minister’s Office, which brings together the main Finnish actors in the Arctic affairs.
Arctic policy in the Government Programme
The Government will prepare a new strategy on Arctic policy, which will set out Finland's long-term goals in the region and determine the resources needed for this work.
