(Stockholm, 13 December) The Swedish Government has formally appointed Dr Jessica Tuchman Mathews as a new member of the SIPRI Governing Board.

Dr Jessica Tuchman Mathews is an American scholar with a background in biochemistry and biophysics. She was most recently President of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a foreign policy think tank in Washington, D.C., and has also held distinguished positions in the executive and legislative branches of government, management, research and journalism.

‘I have admired SIPRI’s work and its impact on global thinking for so many years. Now, I couldn’t be more pleased to make a small contribution to it at a time when its work is crucial’, comments Jessica Mathews.

Welcoming the appointment, SIPRI’s Chair of the Governing Board Jan Eliasson says, ‘We are extremely honoured that Jessica Mathews has accepted our invitation. Her background, impressive career and experience both as scientist and head of a world-leading think tank offer a truly beneficial combination for SIPRI and we look forward to her contributions to SIPRI’s Governing Board’.

Apart from her post at Carnegie, Dr Mathews was Director of the Office of Global Issues of the National Security Council, covering nuclear proliferation, conventional arms sales policy, chemical and biological warfare, and human rights; she served as deputy to the Undersecretary of State for Global Affairs; and she was founding Vice President and Director of Research of the World Resources Institute, a center for policy research on environmental and natural-resource management issues.

‘Dr Mathews’ expertise, her career and broad range of experience will bring very relevant and timely input to many areas of our research’, says SIPRI’s Director Dan Smith. ‘Especially with the current global outlook, I am grateful that Dr Mathews will help guide our participation in international public discourse.’

The Governing Board takes the strategic decisions on SIPRI’s research agenda, activities, organization and financial administration. Dr Mathews joins a board of individuals with profound and broad-ranging expertise in diplomacy, policy formation, academia and research.

Global arms industry: First rise in arms sales since 2010, says SIPRI

 Xuefei Chen Axelsson
STOCKHOLM, Jan. 22(Greenpost)– Global arms sales increased 38 percent since 2002, according to Stockholm International Peace Research Institute report issued in December.

Global arms industry: First rise in arms sales since 2010, says SIPRI

Sales of arms and military services by the world’s largest arms-producing and military services companies—the SIPRI Top 100—totalled $374.8 billion in 2016, according to new international arms industry data released today by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI).

The total for the SIPRI Top 100 in 2016 is 1.9 per cent higher compared with 2015 and represents an increase of 38 per cent since 2002 (when SIPRI began reporting corporate arms sales). This is the first year of growth in SIPRI Top 100 arms sales after five consecutive years of decline.

US companies increase their share of total arms sales in 2016

At a combined total of $217.2 billion, arms sales of US companies listed in the SIPRI Top 100 grew by 4.0 per cent in 2016. US military operations overseas as well as acquisitions of large weapon systems by other countries have driven this rise. Arms sales by Lockheed Martin—the world’s largest arms producer—rose by 10.7 per cent in 2016, which was decisive to the increase in the USA’s share of overall SIPRI Top 100 sales to 57.9 per cent. ‘With the acquisition of helicopter producer Sikorsky in late 2015 and higher delivery volumes of the F-35 combat aircraft, Lockheed Martin reported significant growth in its arms sales in 2016,’ says Aude Fleurant, Director of SIPRI’s Arms and Military Expenditure Programme.

The rise in sales and the number of US military services companies ranked in the SIPRI Top 100 are noticeable trends in 2016. Some of these companies have increased their sales through the acquisition of the military services divisions of larger arms producers. This was the case for Leidos, for example, which acquired Lockheed Martin’s information technology and technical services businesses in 2016.

Arms sales by companies in Western Europe remain stable, but trends diverge

The combined arms sales of companies in Western Europe listed in the SIPRI Top 100 remained stable in 2016 at a total of $91.6 billion—an increase of 0.2 per cent compared with 2015. However, the trends for arms sales in the largest arms-producing countries— namely the United Kingdom, France, Italy and Germany—displayed clear divergences. There were overall decreases in the arms sales of Trans-European, French and Italian companies, while companies in the UK and Germany recorded overall increases.

‘Germany’s 6.6 per cent increase in arms sales for 2016 is mainly due to the growth in sales of armoured vehicle producer Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (12.8 per cent) and land systems producer Rheinmetall (13.3 per cent),’ says SIPRI Senior Researcher Pieter Wezeman. ‘Both companies have benefited from demand for arms in Europe, the Middle East and South East Asia.’

The UK’s decision to withdraw from the European Union did not seem to have an impact on the arms sales of British companies, which rose by 2.0 per cent in 2016. The arms sales of BAE Systems, the fourth largest arms producer globally, remained stable (up by 0.4 per cent). The highest growth in arms sales by a British company (43.2 per cent) was recorded by GKN, an aerospace components manufacturer.

Russian arms sales grow, but pace of increase slows

The combined arms sales of Russian companies listed in the SIPRI Top 100 increased by 3.8 per cent, amounting to $26.6 billion in 2016. Russian companies accounted for 7.1 per cent of the overall total. ‘The major economic difficulties experienced by Russia in 2016 have contributed to a slowdown in the rate of increase in the arms sales of Russian companies,’ says SIPRI Senior Researcher Siemon Wezeman.

Among the 10 Russian companies listed in the SIPRI Top 100, the trends in arms sales are mixed: five companies recorded sales growth, while the other five showed decreases. The highest ranked Russian company in the SIPRI Top 100 for 2016 is United Aircraft Corporation, which is placed 13th. Its arms sales grew by 15.6 per cent compared with 2015 due to increased deliveries to the Russian armed forces and higher export volumes.

 South Korea dominates arms sales by emerging producers

SIPRI’s ‘emerging producers’ category covers companies based in Brazil, India, South Korea and Turkey. The trend in this category for 2016 is dominated by the 20.6 per cent overall increase in the arms sales of South Korean companies, with total sales amounting to 8.4 billion. ‘Continuing and rising threat perceptions drive South Korea’s acquisitions of military equipment, and it is increasingly turning to its own arms industry to supply its demand for weapons,’ says Siemon Wezeman. ‘At the same time, South Korea is aiming to realize its goal of becoming a major arms exporter.’

 Falling Japanese arms sales drive decline in other established producers’ total

SIPRI’s ‘other established producers’ category covers companies based in Australia, Israel, Japan, Poland, Singapore and Ukraine. The combined arms sales of companies in these countries fell by 1.2 per cent in 2016, largely driven by an overall decrease in the arms sales of Japanese companies (–6.4 per cent). Japan’s largest arms companies experienced sharp falls in 2016: Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ arms sales decreased by 4.8 per cent, while those of Kawasaki Heavy Industries and Mitsubishi Electric Corporation declined by 16.3 and 29.2 per cent respectively.

 The SIPRI Arms Industry Database

The SIPRI Arms Industry Database was created in 1989. It contains financial and employment data on arms-producing companies worldwide. Since 1990, SIPRI has published data on the arms sales and employment of the 100 largest of these arms-producing companies in the SIPRI Yearbook.

‘Arms sales’ are defined by SIPRI as sales of military goods and services to military customers, including sales for domestic procurement and sales for export. Changes are calculated in real terms and country comparisons are only for the same companies over different years.

Two legendary climate researchers receive this year’s Crafoord Prize

Syukuro Manabe and Susan Solomon have played dominant roles in climate research. They are being rewarded with Sweden’s Crafoord Prize in Geosciences 2018, worth six million kronor, for contributing decisive knowledge to aid in combatting of one of our time’s greatest global challenges.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences will award the 2018 Crafoord Prize in Geosciences to:

Syukuro Manabe, Princeton University, USA

and

Susan Salomon, MIT, USA

for fundamental contributions to understanding the role of atmospheric trace gases in Earth’s climate system”.

Atmospheric physicist Syukoro Manabe created the first global climate model after his ground-breaking studies of atmospheric dynamics in the 1960s. In this model, he connected the processes that take place in the atmosphere and at ground level with the oceans’ movements and their thermal balance. This new way of using large-scale numerical modelling to predict how the Earth’s temperature is influenced by atmospheric carbon dioxide levels was a major breakthrough; researchers finally had the powerful tools they required to investigate the Earth’s complex climate systems. The basics of his work remain fundamental to contemporary climate models.

Syukoro Manabe has long been a world-leader in physically based numerical climate modelling and his development of the first global climate model is the foundation for all modern climate research.
Atmospheric chemist Susan Solomon solved the 1980s’ puzzle of the Antarctic ozone hole’s appearance, using theoretical and chemical measurement-focused studies in the Antarctic atmosphere. She examined the ice crystals in the stratospheric clouds that form there every year due to the extreme cold. These ice crystals cause the initiation of chemical processes that differ from those that were previously assumed to occur. On this basis, Susan Solomon presented a theory that explained the link between manmade CFC emissions and the chemical processes taking place in the Antarctic stratosphere in the early spring, ones that led to the extensive depletion of its ozone layer. Her theory was verified by the results of the measurements conducted in the stratosphere. Later, Susan Solomon showed how the thickness of the ozone layer in the southern hemisphere affects atmospheric flows and temperatures all the way down to ground level.

For more than 30 years, Susan Solomon’s studies have been at the absolute frontline of research into the ozone layer and its role in the Earth’s climate systems. The chemical reactions proposed by Susan Solomon are now one of the cornerstones for all modelling of the stratosphere’s chemical composition.

瑞典冰球俱乐部(Djurgardens IF Hockey Club)副主席冰球运动主任斯图佩尔(K-G Stoppel)代表瑞方冰球界对来访客人表示热烈欢迎。作为瑞典冰球界的代表,我认为开展冰球运动传播冰球运动是非常重要的。我想再没有比中国更重要的合作伙伴了。但是,想到瑞典的冰球有近一百年的发展历史,冰球运动不能一蹴而就,需要付出时间和经历,以及艰苦的努力。尽管我们现在的目标是北京2022年的冬奥会,但是,我们要有长远的目标。当然,瑞方也认同以2022年的冬奥会为契机在中国营造对冰雪运动的兴趣。我们瑞典在冰球培训方面感到很自豪,我想在这个层面我们可以和中方合作。期待与大家成为好朋友期待进一步合作。

全国政协外事协会委员、中国国际文化传播中心执行主席龙宇翔先生致辞说,很高兴在美丽的瑞典相聚,感谢桂大使为我们发出邀请,感谢瑞中企业家协会张巧珍会长及瑞方朋友的款待。中国国际文化传播中心成立于1984年,是中国对外文化交流传播的重要窗口,在文化经济教育体育等多方面开展全面合作。先后与世界130多个国家建立了友好往来。特别是我们梦想的瑞典,我相信通过文化交流和体育,特别是冰球,我们会建立深厚的友谊。

他说,中国2022年的冬奥会将向世界敞开,中国国家主席习近平高度重视冬奥会。我们中心主管的昆仑鸿星冰球俱乐部在短短的一年时间里已经和很多世界强队进行比赛,我们尽最大努力奋战冬奥会,我们在一年内已经建立了八个冰球俱乐部,四个是国家级冰球俱乐部。我们的女冰球俱乐部已经在广东深圳开展训练。正如瑞典朋友刚才说的,在这么短的时间内建立这样的坚强有力的冰球队是一般人不可想象的。我们俱乐部创始人岳欣禹先生几乎每天飞行,为冰球运动做出很大贡献。2018年,我们将在中国建立20个冰球俱乐部。我们刚刚从芬兰来到瑞典。我们将为瑞典朋友提供有力的保障,在平等的机会面前,我们会优选瑞典。机会是大家的,也是平等的,但是,就是看谁走在前面。我相信有我们的桂大使,有我们的张巧珍会长,有我们的张会长能够推动我们的冰球生根开花结果。

我也相信通过这次的交流,我们期待瑞典冰球协会尽快到中国进行友好访问。我们可能在很短的时间内就能在北京朝阳区建立冰场并运营。感谢张巧珍会长在这么短的时间支持我们的会谈,也感谢驻瑞使馆对我们的支持。也感谢瑞典冰协俱乐部邀请我们看了精彩的比赛。我们昆仑鸿星俱乐部将一如既往地向瑞方冰球强队学习,祝中瑞冰球队在2022年冬奥会取得优异成绩。

SIPRI Expert on chances and challenges on cooperation of Ice Silk Road

By Xuefei Chen Axelsson

STOCKHOLM, Jan. 11(Greenpost)– Chinese President Xi Jinping has put up forward a proposal about cooperation in Ice Silk Road along arctic routes as the ice in the arctic is melting faster and faster.

Greenpost has a chance to have a  written interview with Ekaterina Klimenko, Researcher and SIPRI expert on Arctic Security. The following is the Q & A.

1.     What are the chances and challenges in the cooperation of this ice Silk Road, or Northern Sea Route for China?

 Traditionally, Russia has been reluctant to allow non-Arctic states to play a strong role in Arctic region, including in economic projects. However, a number of factors have shifted Russia’s policies, among them significant shifts in the world energy markets and sanctions. This allowed for great China’s involvement, first of all, into oil and gas development in the Russia Arctic zone. Moscow and Beijing has significantly expended Chian’s investments in to the joint project on the Yamal peninsular, Yamal LNG.

 The Russian government officials and the President Putin personally have on a number of occasions encourages Asian partners, and China in particular, to look at the Northern Sea Route as a possible alternative shipping route. However, over the last couple years China, and other Asian states, is also seen as investors into the construction of the NSR infrastructure. E.g. in a Joint Statement signed by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and Russian Prime Minister Medvedev in December 2015, it was highlighted that the two sides would cooperate in developing the NSR into a competitive commercial sea route in the future. On several occasions Dmitry Rogozin, the head of Russia’s State Commission for Arctic Development, has mentioned that Russia and China are discussing cooperation on the NSR.

 Among the major challenges at the moment remains the fact that the Russian Government has still not defined the future of many infrastructure projects along the NSR. It is therefore unclear whether any of the projects will actually be implemented. Thus, despite the evident enthusiasm of Russian officials for fostering Chinese participation in infrastructure projects, this type of cooperation remains ‘on paper’ and does not go further than official statements and signed MOUs.

2.     How will this affect the Arctic countries?

It is too early to say at the moment how Russia China cooperation on the Northern Sea Route would affect the other Arctic states, as there is not much progress with it. I think we will see much more in the next 5-10 years.

 3.     How will it affect the environment?

Expansion of any economic activity in the Arctic brings the risks for environment. Growing shipping along the NSR, especially shipping of hydrocarbons creates significant risks for oil spills.

 4.     How can China participate in projects along the route?

 We have already 2 examples of how China can participate in the projects: the construction of the Belkomur railway and the deep-water harbour in Arkhangelsk. In 2015 Chinese Poly Technologies Inc. signed an agreement to invest in the development of the Belkomur railway and in the future to be responsible for its operation. . The project is believed to have a cost frame of more than 200 billion roubles (€2.67 billion). Poly Technologies has reportedly also expressed an interest in participating in construction of the new deep-water harbour in Arkhangelsk.[1]

I think we will see more of this type of partnerships.

Thank you.
