ST PETERSBURG, November 6 (Itar-Tass) — The Maritime Board will meet in Russia's second largest city in early December to address the problems of developing the Arctic region, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said here on Tuesday.
Rogozin was speaking at a conference on the development of the defense sector and placing of state defense orders.
"We agree with Petersburg governor Georgy Poltavchenko that we'd hold a meeting of the Maritime Board under the government in the beginning of December," Rogozin said.
The main themes will be the protection of Russian interests and research in the Arctic zone.
The Maritime Board will consider how and with what funds to conduct research, " so we intend to invite representatives of the industrial sector and science to the meeting," the deputy prime minister said.
Petersburg is vigorously setting up the Arctic cluster. Earlier, the governor offered to amass all the resources for developing the Arctic zone in St Petersburg, given its large research and industrial potential.
