BOOM TOWN IN THE HEART OF THE NORTH CALOTTE REGION
Lapland’s location in the hub of the Arctic, between east and west is unique and makes Rovaniemi an attractive place for establishing businesses, as well as offering investors the opportunity to become involved in the billion-euro projects in the Arctic regions of Europe and Russia.
The importance of the entire Arctic region is experiencing dramatic growth thanks to the utilisation of natural resources, climate change, the new logistic connections with Asia, and the economic opportunities associated with these. The opening of the Northern Sea Route shifts transportation to the north and shortens transportation journeys between Central Europe and Asia by around 40 percent.
Rovaniemi is a region that enjoys eight different seasons. Perpetually changing conditions, the acclimatisation and control of such, has made Lapland into a hub for Arctic expertise that is exceptionally difficult to find elsewhere. Utilising Arctic research, snow and ice construction, cold-air technology and Arctic design in products and services also provide competitive benefits for international enterprises to establish business in Lapland.
