First, to the development of the Northern Sea Route, secondly, to the extraction of hydrocarbons and other minerals, thirdly, to the digital industry and, finally, to the traditional commercial activities of Northern native nations. The study offers a solution for the country's social programs through the corporations’ economic activities. It is noted that the legal regulation of the Arctic is partial, there are significant gaps. In addition, new flagship territories have appeared, where a special regime of economic activity is being created.
