The basic industries in the north as well as the seafood industry in Northern Norway can lay a concrete foundation for a regional enlargement in the Arctic environment. The prospects for increased mineral extraction in Northern Sweden and Northern Finland are good. As well as increased demand for seafood from Northern Norway in particular.
The development of a large-scale and environmentally friendly basic industry development in Northern Norway, Northern Sweden and Northern Finland is threatened by shortcomings in transport infrastructure. In the short and medium term, continued capacity growth and the creation of a modern coastal railway are essential and in the slightly longer term, a Northern east / west rail link.
New deposits and new mines create values in the short and long term. A sustainable and viable mineral sector that can create new and more environmentally friendly value chains demands an expanded transportinfrastructure.
National transport plans in Norway, Sweden and Finland must, like the EU’s new infrastructure policy foresees, aim to remove bottlenecks, upgrade infrastructure and simplify cross-border transport for passengers and companies.
The purpose of the conference is to focus on the current challenges and the political dimension of infrastructural and logistical issues in Northern Scandinavia and Finland and to promote increased cooperation between the regions in Northern Sweden, Norway and Finland for improved sustainable logistics.
The conference will bring together decision makers from Sweden, Norway and Finland working with infrastructure and logistical issues involving sustainable transportation in Northern Scandinavia and Finland.
Representatives from the basic industries, the seafood industry, industrial associations, politicians from municipalities, regional and national parliaments.
