The head of Yakutia, Yegor Borisov, met with the governor of Lapland, Mika Riipi
Egor Borisov thanked the guest for his active participation in the international scientific and practical conference "The Arctic: Prospects for Sustainable Development", which is being held these days in Yakutia.
During the conversation, the sides also discussed options for continuing cooperation within the framework of the international non-governmental organization Northern Forum. Yegor Borisov asked his Finnish counterpart to consider the prospects for the entry of the province of Lapland into the Northern Forum.
Note that Lapland was one of the founders of the Northern Forum in 1991, retained membership in the organization until 2009, and in 2001-2005 served as the presiding region in the Northern Forum (under the Governor, Mrs. Hannel Pock). Prior to 2006, the Northern Forum secretariats in Yakutsk, St. Petersburg and Rovaniemi (Lapland, Finland) also functioned.
In addition, Yegor Borisov actualized the issues of interaction between Yakutia and Lapland in the sphere of tourism and in the field of traditional nature management of indigenous small peoples of the North.
Il Darkhan stressed that the unique experience of the successful development of reindeer breeding in market conditions, which is available to colleagues from Lapland, is of practical interest for Yakutia.

According to Yegor Afanasyevich, it is necessary to renew and expand this practice.
The governor of the province of Lapland, Mika Riipi, supported the proposals of Yegor Borisov on establishing more dynamic cooperation in the areas listed above, as well as on sharing experience in the field of mining, the use of innovative technologies in the climatic conditions of the North.
