·         The Arctic region is an increasingly important strategic sea route, which opens up access to ports in northern Europe for maritime commerce. Both Russia and China are augmenting their military presence in the region to unlock strategic advantages. How should we bolster our surface fleet to ensure that Arctic sea lines of communication remain free and open? How should NATO navies respond to the changing Arctic and project naval power over emerging economic routes?

·         What are the peculiarities of conducting naval operations in the Arctic? What kind of training is required to defend this area of responsibility?
