Abstract text The circumpolar areas belong to different national regimes, and information on social- economic issues and business development has been dispersed and not easily available. Business Index North will contribute to filling the knowledge gaps by developing a comprehensive, comparable and regular information and analytical tool on socio-economic issues and business developments in the circumpolar areas. The annual overview and analysis will highlight new opportunities, and - more importantly – identify challenges associated with, as well as barriers to further developments in the Arctic regions. Business Index North will establish a recurring, knowledge-based, systematic information tool for stakeholders on Arctic business development. The project will facilitate coordination between stakeholders in the different circumpolar nations whilst aiming for identifying and developing mutual benefits in order to strengthen cooperation in the High North, both between nations and stakeholder groups.
