Please join us on Wednesday, February 7 for a timely conversation with Mr. Timo Soini, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Finland. As Finland's chairmanship of the Arctic Council approaches the one year mark, Minister Soini will provide an update on Finland's priorities, including environmental protection, strengthening connectivity, meteorological cooperation, and education. A critical partner of the United States in the High North, Finland continues to explore the Arctic's economic potential and advocate for the region's sustainable development, while also assuring the protection of the climate and ecosystems. Minister Soini will also discuss the increasing engagement of non-Arctic states in Arctic cooperation.
