However, while Norway continues to seek a stronger economic relationship with China, including via free trade negotiations, the shifting security milieu in Northern Europe, including a growing NATO presence and closer Sino-Russian cooperation, have affected these plans. Moreover, as China seeks to further its Arctic strategic interests, Norway is finding itself to be a ‘front-line state’ in what is emerging as a greater geopolitical competition in the far north.
