The Government made a resolution on Finland's Arctic policy strategy in its plenary session on Thursday, 17 June. The Arctic policy strategy defines Finland's key objectives in the Arctic region and outlines the main priorities for achieving them. All activities in the Arctic must be based on the carrying capacity of the natural environment, the protection of the climate, sustainable development principles and respect for the rights of indigenous populations. From these starting points, the targets relating to economic operations and Finland's economic interests can also be assessed.
