In recent years with rapid changes of climate and environment in the Arctic region and China’s economic growth, the interaction between China and the Arctic has been increasingly deepened, which calls for a coherent and sustainable development of the Arctic and China.

China-Nordic Arctic research cooperation has been intensified over the past few years and during that period Chinese institutes such as the Polar Research Institute of China (PRIC) and Shanghai Institute of International Studies (SIIS) have strengthened their ties with international counterparts.


The 7th China-Nordic Arctic Cooperation Symposium will take place in Shanghai, China, 7-9 May 2019 under the theme "Arctic Fisheries, Polar Silk Road, and Sustainable Development Practices” with thematic sessions covering the following topics: "Polar Silk Road: Vision, Progress and Outlook”, "Arctic Fisheries”, and "China-Nordic Policy Synergies on Arctic Sustainable Development”.
