Abstract
This Reference Document presents the highlights from the 2018 Arctic Maritime Symposium (AMS), an unclassified conference held 14–16 August 2018 at the Joint Base Elmendorf- Richardson Arctic Warrior Event Center, Anchorage, AK. The purpose of AMS was to bring together military and policy experts in order to discuss current and future challenges of operating in the Arctic region. Discussion panels analysed important questions, such as the status of China and Russia, operational and exercise integration, capabilities to operate in the Arctic, and the need for ongoing presence in the region. The commercial investment and operations were also discussed. The first annual AMS was successful, bringing together a higher number of participants than anticipated, and it is hoped that such meetings will continue. The AMS highlighted the importance of ongoing discussion and joint effort to tackle the challenges surrounding the Arctic maritime operational requirements and opportunities.
