Drive Leadership in Arctic Development, Research and Infrastructure

Alaskans are at the forefront of emerging economic and resource development opportunities, vibrant healthy communities, and circumpolar cooperation.

It is estimated that there is $100 billion of private sector funds looking for investment opportunities in the Arctic. Alaska needs to be smart about positioning itself for future investments in Arctic Infrastructure whether it be ports or high bandwidth internet connections.

The Alaska Senate Majority is in alignment with the final AAPC report, "Our vision for the Arctic is based on economic and resource development, a healthy environment, secure and safe communities, and transparent decision making."
