In 2009, Commonwealth North called for the necessary infrastructure investments to allow increased human activity in the Arctic to occur safely and efficiently and to increase the U.S. Coast Guard's presence in the region, facilitated by the building of Polar Class icebreakers. Progress has been made on both fronts, but more remains to be done. This session will focus on illustrating both the progress and the opportunities for Arctic maritime infrastructure.
