Abstract

Arctic issues are at present overshadowed by developments on the world stage, by the catastrophic events plaguing Japan and the globe, by the escalation of hostilities in Libya. But the Arctic is a subject that will be of crucial significance for the long-term survival of mankind. I would like to thank all our international guests who have travelled to Berlin to share their thoughts and opinions with us. And above all, I would like to thank the Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, which is co-hosting this Conference with us.
