The film about the Murmansk region is the first in a series of stories that will be filmed during Russia's chairmanship of the Arctic Council in 2021-2023. Nine films within the Regions of Russia project will tell about important investment projects, interesting tourist destinations, nature and local customs of the Arctic regions.
The film tells about the significant enterprises of the region, industrial and infrastructure projects that are being implemented today in the Murmansk region, such as the Center for the Construction of Large-Tonnage Offshore Structures (TsSKMS), the Lavna coal transshipment complex, the Murman Seafood fish processing plant.
“The competitive advantage of our region is an ice-free port. We are implementing the Murmansk transport hub project, which opens up unique opportunities for the transformation of the Murmansk port into an international logistics hub. The unique tax conditions created within the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation, the Capital of the Arctic ASEZ, as well as long-term regional incentives for SMEs give impetus to the development of the economy and logistics,” said Andrey Chibis, Governor of the Murmansk Region.
The film will also present the unique educational programs of the Murmansk State Technical University, the recreational opportunities of the region, and, of course, tell about the life of the indigenous peoples of the North and its most famous four-legged inhabitants - reindeer and huskies!
The Roscongress Foundation acts as the operator of the events under the Russian Chairmanship of the Arctic Council.
