Executive Director Dr. Sakaguchi gave a talk as a key note speaker during Plenary Session 4: "Sustainable Arctic Ocean" at "Arctic Frontiers 2020" held in Tromsø, Norway from Sunday 26th to Thursday 30th January 2020.

In his speech, Dr. Sakaguchi expressed his view on relationship between Japan and the Arctic region, and global issues such as climate change in the Arctic. He stressed that Japan and JAMSTEC would not detach themselves from those global issues, but would rather promote Arctic research through open and active cooperation with related countries. He also participated in a panel discussion to exchange opinions about the sustainable Arctic Ocean with other participants including CEO of the Institute of Marine Research, Norway and the Executive Secretary of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO.
