The Arctic Gateway

Viruses and conflicts challenge international cooperation. With China taking a larger role in global affairs, how is this influencing opportunities and challenges for governments, companies, and people?

What is China’s global role in business, development, and the global value chains?

Sign up for an exciting and open seminar with us at The High North Center, Nord University Business School, and our partners. The seminar will also be streamed.
