China plays a major part in developing the Arctic region
Several ambassadors and experts were gathered in Finland for the fourth China-Nordic Arctic Cooperation Symposium. One of the keynote speakers was Jingjing Su, senior legal consultant of Bech-Bruun, and he emphasised, among other things, why cooperation between the Scandinavian Arctic countries and China is so important.
Ambassadors and experts from around the world were gathered for a large symposium in Finland on 6-8 June. The main theme was "The Sustainable Arctic – Opportunities and Challenges of Globalisation." Here, experts shared knowledge of and insight into the financial and structural Arctic challenges and their global significance.
Jingjing Su, senior legal consultant of Bech-Bruun and a specialist in setting up businesses, was one of the keynote speakers at this large Symposium. In his speech, he, among other things, pointed out that Chinese investments are much needed if a stable development is to be secured in the Arctic region. He focused in particular on the Greenlandic market which is interesting for Chinese investors due to the many natural resources and the geographical location allowing access to shipping routes.
Jingjing Su is an expert in Danish-Chinese legal matters, and he further contributed with professional advice on how Chinese businesses may contribute to Greenland's development through investments.
Other scientists and experts from, e.g., Finland, China and Iceland also shared their knowledge of Arctic tourism and sustainability – all with a view to securing cooperation between China and the Scandinavian Arctic countries.
