HELSINKI, April 3 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia and Finland need to build up cooperation and trade in the Arctic region, Finnish President Sauli Niinisto said on Tuesday.

He said the cooperation was necessary for both countries, which should supplement their partnership with the promotion of exports and sustainable presence in the Arctic region. In Murmansk alone the number of issued Finnish visas grew by 148% from 2009 to 2011, he said, adding that Russians trusted the skills of Finnish companies and the quality of their products.

Finland should be more active in moving Arctic problems to the forefront in the European Union and bolster multilateral cooperation in the Arctic, the president said. In his opinion, cooperation is possible in environmental protection, economy and sea transport routes. Other promising areas are research, design, Arctic construction projects, algorithms of actions under extreme ice conditions, green technologies and tourism.
