In recent years, China has gained a stronger voice in international politics and has turned its attention and interest to the High North and the opportunities that exist there. The entry into the region of a growing superpower has not gone unnoticed, and has raised a number of questions among the Arctic states. Many observers have put forward different views and speculations about China’s actions and rhetoric in the Arctic, and what they have in common is that they want to understand China’s intentions. This article introduces China’s Arctic policy-making, how China formulates its interests in the Arctic, and describes key areas of action in the Arctic. What do China’s interests in the High North look like today? In conclusion, we reflect on the significance this may have for Norway.
