Italy admitted as Observer to Arctic Council

The news that Italy had been admitted to the Arctic Council with Observer status was received with great satisfaction and gratitude to the Council members and the Swedish Presidency that championed the move.


Recognising both our country’s longtime participation in research and studies on the Arctic, as well as the interest of Italian firms in research applied to benefit the region, the Council’s decision now encourages Italy to further increase its commitment toward the Arctic, intensifying concrete support to the local populations.
