The ice might be melting but megaprojects planned in the Arctic are coming to a grinding halt due to dropping oil prices, rising tensions with Russia and America’s new production capabilities. The icy ‘last frontier’ is expensive and hazardous for all industries and stakeholders are now weighing the return on their current and future investments. In addition indigenous groups and NGOs remain sceptical about the impact commercial activity will have on climate change, biodiversity and local communities.

In 2015, the Economist Events’ Arctic Summit asked whether commercial interest in the Arctic is a bubble about to burst. The Summit gathered senior level politicians, government bodies, NGOs, indigenous groups, intergovernmental organisations, and corporations from across the insurance, infrastructure, oil gas and mining, logistics, shipping, tourism and risk management industries. The Arctic Summit in Oslo unpicked the complexities of doing business in the High North.   

In addition to the event, we provided the option to participate from anywhere in the world, to view the live broadcast straight from the Arctic Summit in Oslo.
