The conference will as well address Doing Business in the Arctic, status and outlook organized by the Arctic Economic Council. It will provide the opportunity for attendees to network virtually and meet new connections doing business in the Arctic.

Since its inception in 2017, the Polar Institute has become a premier forum for discussion and policy analysis of Arctic and Antarctic issues, and is known in Washington, DC and elsewhere as the Arctic Public Square. The Institute holistically studies the central policy issues facing these regions—with an emphasis on Arctic governance, climate change, economic development, scientific research, security, and Indigenous communities—and communicates trusted analysis to policymakers and other stakeholders.
